#279 of 526 in Historic Sites in Rome
The church of San Cosimato is a church located in the city of Rome, Italy. It was originally built in the 10th century in the Trastevere rione and now includes the hospital known as "Nuovo Regina Margherita." Originally, it was built as a Benedictine monastery dedicated to Saints Cosmas and Damian, from whom it derives its name, and it carried the added designation of in mica aurea (“in the golden sand”) due to the presence of fluvial sand of yellowish color.The monastery was transferred from the jurisdiction of the Benedictine Order to that of the nuns known as the Recluses of Saint Damian (Recluse di san Damiano). From 1233, the church served as a hostel.Pope Sixtus IV had the church and monastery rebuilt in 1475, and after 1870, the convent was converted into a hospital. The façade of the church looks upon a public square that is also called San Cosimato. The church has a small Romanesque bell tower.The presbytery contains a fresco called Madonna and Child between Saints Francis and Claire, by Antonio del Massaro.

  • The San Cosimato church in Trastevere seemed to be in the hospital, and the one that the entrance of the church was on the side of San Cosimato Plaza was closed, and the Guide board which recorded the church name had gone out though the gate of the iron fence had been shut. The entrance to the hospital is located on the south side of Emilio Morisigini Street, but I cannot help but abandon it because it did not seem to be able to enter the hospital building and to see the church in the site. The place of the hospital might be taking over the building in the place where the monastery was. There seems to be a corridor and a courtyard, and there is a church in those one. Although it is a small church, it was regrettable though it was thought that it was quite a thing when the appearance such as the wall in the temple was examined beforehand.

  • The church is not worth the trip to a city like Rome. Cloisters, especially one, are more interesting. The portico of the Middle Ages that communicates with the square is in good condition and, in Rome, the remains of this period are not so numerous. A detour to make if we go to see Santa Maria in Tratevere to the west or San Francesco (one of the most beautiful statues of Bernini, n painting by Simon Vouet, etc.

  • This is the church of a 13th century Poor Clare nunnery which was turned into a hospital in 1891. The cloisters can be visited, but the little church is very rarely open.

  • I have a surprise for you: even if the tour guide read this church in Trastevere is a renowned artist, I really can find you and this for the simple reason that even cops and cabbies don't exactly know how to point you to. And if you'll miraculously, see dump gate, lock No. Just another very lucky you'll discover that this church is in a large complex of the hospital and if you can get to this track and the entrance will be open, look at it with a fresco of the Madonna between Saints. Sighed.

  • Church to the stranger (whose true name is Church of Saints Cosma and Damiano) immersed in the monumental complex of the hospital Regina Margherita. It was part of the original core of the convent of SS Cosma e Damiano. 14th century has undergone several restorations, one of which is very important in the second half of the 19th century. Rarely explored inside.
