  • Regal is a fine Cathedral. Seda, ancient ruins near there, so either powerful and not lost. Interior is clean and not too ornate decoration.

  • Between the Coliseum, Circus Maximus and villa Celimontana in a quiet corner of Rome, the ancient religious complex established by Pope Gregory the great. Very elegant example of 17th century Roman, out of the chaos of the city, reachable through a beautiful staircase, beautiful porch full of famous graves, beautiful floors, interesting the chapel of St. Gregory and the cappella Salviati.

  • I live in Rome for many years but I've never understood from outside the value of this unique church with its quadriporto site.

  • This Benedictine monastery is worth visiting. It is not open every day so you might want to check ahead. For Anglicans, this site is significant because it is from here that Pope Gregory the Great sent Augustine of Canterbury to evangelize the English. This place is welcoming of Anglican groups and will make arrangements for visits.
  • Visited around but church was closed, there is also a monastery next to it. Nice garden seen thru one of the doors in the hallway.
  • +JMJ....History! History! History! wonderfully preserved in this Church. Had the blessing of staying in the guest rooms connected to this Church, March 2007. The room was very clean, had a lovely view over the Monastery gardens, very affordable. No eatery was attached, but there were plenty places to eat in the area. The Arch of Constantine is nearby. The Church is not too far from the Coliseum and many other ancient Roman sights. And, though it was a distance from St Peter's Basilica, the Metro was not too far a walk. There is much that fascinated me about this Church whose administrators are Benedictine monks. But, one above all is the preservation of the marble chair used by St Gregory the Great, 6th century Pope, responsible for sending missionaries to England. This friend of Jesus, God/Man, was a compassionate spiritual father to many, particularly the spiritually and materially poor.
  • Beautiful church with magnificent frescoes and a wonderful 13th-century Cosmatesque floor.
  • Another beautiful church killed by baroque reconstructions.
