  • When you walk along The Palatine Hill, along the Sacred Road (Via Sacra), a Franciscan monastery, The Fraternita Monastiche di Gerusalemme, is located 70 metres south of the Arc de Triomphe. And if you manage to get to the territory of the monastery, you can see closer to the pretty church Chiesa di San Sebastiano al Palatino, the history of which began in the 10th century. The current church building was built by the Barberini family in 1624 under Pope Urbana VIII. By the way, it was the pontiff Urban VIII who issued in the same, 1624, the papal bull, which under the fear of weaning forbids the use of tobacco in holy places. For this reason, it is better not to smoke in the monastery... Although it is better not to smoke at all...

  • It is a church located on the way to the Convent of S. Bonaventura at Palatine from the Colosseo. As it is built in the 9th century, but not visible only through a gap in the fence.

  • To get there you have to walk the path outside the Forum, very impressive and repays the ascent on foot. 10th-century frescoes. Very interesting.

  • Nice small church. Paintings look like of the late 18th century. Narrow path leads up the heel to the dead end of the street. Great place for those who like to likes to explore Rome on feet.
  • This is a gorgeous small Catholic Church. I attended a Sunday night mass here and even though I don't know much Italian, could easily follow along because well... Catholic Mass. But the people here were super nice, and the mass was just gorgeous! The singing here is amazing in this small space! And the history around it adds a whole other level to the beauty of this place. Being just up the hill from the Colloseum and the ruins adds that touch of Rome magic. This place is worth a quick peak and even better for a mass. Jeans are ok here
  • Beautiful songs and garden
  • small, calm & lovely church.
  • A place with long story
