  • Climbing to the Celio from the Circus Maximus, the church of St. Gregory the Great is the first to meet on the right, at the height of a grand staircase from which you can also enjoy a partial view of the Palatine. The entrance to the proper church is anticipated by a porch. The interior is divided into three aisles with as many chapels at the end of each and overall represents an interesting visit. For those who visit, if you find the gates of the facade open you have to enter the quadriportico and ring the doorbell of the monastery that is located on the right side, then wait for someone to open it. There are schedules and generally you always find someone who opens since in the monastery also carry out sales activities of some products prepared by them.

  • It is up high, along a large staircase, the entrance under the arches, you cross a square cloister and portika. Too bad to find it closed.

  • Rome hidden place. Simple beautiful.
  • 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.
  • It looked a bended church. The building is truly marvellous. And everything around. You can see a beautiful line of pine trees. Which gives a nice freshness to the ambient.
  • +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.
