  • During our afternoon walk, we came upon the Chiesa di Sant'Alfonso all'Esquillino (Church of Saint Adolphus on the Esquiline), which we almost overlooked. This church was built in the mid-1800s and pr...  more »
  • This is a small church on the Via Merulana. It has kept an ancient eastern icon of Our Lady of Perpetual Relief for a century and a half. It is worth coming to see it, as it is relatively small.

  • The church is close to the church of Santa Maria Maggiore. Looking at the façade feels like a pretty new one. In a very bright atmosphere, the stained glass was beautifully decorated with colorful frescoes and sculptures.

  • This church is dedicated to St. Alphonsus Liguori, the founder of the Redemptorists. It is not a typical Roman church where you can find famous art pieces, mosaics or relics of Saints. But for those who have a special devotion to Our Lady of Perpetual Help, this is the church to go, as the original icon can be found here. I spent some time here in prayer and it was very peaceful. Several of my petitions were also answered.
  • Beautiful basilica dedicated to the Roman martyrs Ss pradessi collecting the martyr's blood with a sponge S prudenza tomb also Reliquary of the pillar of Christ scoured here
  • The people here will make you feel welcome and home. The original image of the Lady of Perpetual Help is in this church.
  • Visit the shrine and see the original icon of Our Lady of Perpetual Help. Spiritual retreat in the middle of hectic Rome.
  • This is my favorite church in Rome. The people are very nice and it was a very special place for me when I was visiting Rome. I bought a rosary and a priest blessed it for me. I will definitely come back to this church when I visit Rome again some time.
