  • The neighborhood is undoubtedly very charming. Taking a walk you will find yourself near Quiriti Square. And from here we find this beautiful church. The interiors are very nice. But I imagine that, in case of events, it is very difficult to find parking.

  • It is a church in the north of the Piazza del Popolo, just a short walk from the Tiber to the Vatican. The view from the front is well proportioned, and the paintings that are decorated are also beautiful. The dome is solidly poised behind it, and it makes me feel the strength.

  • It consists of three aisles, of which the aisles are home to seven chapels each and, above them, there are a matron each... To access it there are three portals of which the central one gives access to the church through a wooden narthrate... At the end of the nave there is the presbytery with attached altar and apse, while immediately at the entrance, above, there is the cantory with a valuable organ... Very brightly colored is very pretty and worthy to be visited...

  • I love this church....I love the little chapel in the back of the church...good microphones...so I can hear the mass...excellent priests...they seem very prepared
  • This church was built at the behest of Pope Leo XIII , who intended in this way to celebrate his priestly jubilee: the first stone was laid in 1881 , but the works were undertaken between 1891 and 1898 , the year in which the church was opened to public (even if the works were completed only in 1911 ). It was dedicated to St. Joachim, the father of the Virgin Mary, in memory of the pope's first name.In addition to its architectural aspects, the church also has value in the urbanistic field because, with others from the district and the adjacent Trionfale district (partly contemporary), it tells of an anticlerical tendency widespread in the late 19th century in the newborn Italian state it wanted, placing itself at odds with the Vatican, minimizing the importance of places of worship, assigning them any building lot in the construction of neighborhoods in alignment on secondary roads and not, as one would expect, a lot overlooking the main square of the neighborhood (also in this case, where the Piazza dei Quiriti is really close and has simple residential buildings in view).
  • This beautiful church owns fourteen chapels dedicated to fourteen nations who contributed to the cost of building this church. The cupola was done using aluminium and the stars are made of crystal, creating a special light. If you come from Piazza Navona and seek the metro you can pass this church on the way to Lepanto...
  • We only walked past but the church's architecture and design we're absolutely beautiful!
  • Stunning beautiful church. Has lovely and peaceful Eucharistic adoration chapel.
