  • The Church has a single nave with a barrel vault. Very nice the fresco of the assumption of the Virgin in glory with Saints Sylvester and John the Baptist by Giacinto Brandi

  • Not fit for some time and I was quite impressed to see the State of preservation. Urgent urgent works of restoration. Expects the plaster to fall entirely within the chapels before intervening? That said the Church deserves a careful visit for its magnificent altar, a masterpiece by Orazio Gentileschi in the second chapel on the right and for the cupola frescoed by Pomarancio. It is one of the best that can be seen in Rome the reliquary which should contain the relics of Saint John the Baptist's head. Nice collection of inscriptions that can be seen before. Not to be missed.

  • The Church is located at the corner of the square and is accessed through a lovely courtyard. The Interior has a single nave with a beautiful vaulted frescoed and resplendent with decorations chapels. Inside it houses a relic of Saint John. Personally I find this place particularly attractive and I think it is a must see.

  • A nice chapel. To my absolute surprise to this chapel houses the head of St. John the Baptist.
  • +JMJ...This Church is loved by myself for several reasons: (1) House of Worship and Prayer; (2) It houses art and statues that can only be found in this particular Church, and (3) this Church is the home Church for a lay apostolate called the Legion of Mary, of which I am a former active member, Richmond, VA. Whenever I was blessed to travel to Rome, I always visited this Church and attended the meeting held Sunday afternoon. The photos shared are during a February 2005 pilgrimage, which I made by myself. I found the Filippino citizens to be very welcoming (hope it is OK to post a photo of myself with them.) And, as they spoke English, that was very helpful for me. And, this community usually served their traditional Filippino foods and were always very happy and eager to share with me. I love these people! I love Rome! I pray God will grant me the huge blessing of being able to travel here again!
