(4.5/5 based on 20+ reviews on the web)
Sant'Onofrio al Gianicolo is a titular church in Trastevere, Rome. It is the official church of the papal order of knighthood Order of the Holy Sepulchre. A side chapel is dedicated specifically to the Order and a former grand master, Nicola Canali is entombed there.The church contains memorials of Torquato Tasso, the author of Gerusalemme Liberata, the epic poem that retells the deeds of the crusaders who fought to regain possession of the Holy Sepulchre itself. After wandering all over Italy, the poet requested and obtained shelter at the monastery of Sant’Onofrio and spent the last years of his life there.It was built in 1439 on the site of an ancient hermitage, as part of a cloistered monastery of the Hieronymites that existed here from the 15th-16th century. Behind the Renaissance portico are three lunettes by Domenichino, painted in 1605, commemorating the hermits who lived here and depicting scenes from the life of St Jerome. The church also contains The Madonna of Loreto by Agostino Carracci (his only work in a church in Rome) and frescoes of Scenes from the Life of Mary, attributed to Baldassare Peruzzi.

  • Visited the monastery of Sant ' Onofrio while strolling through Trastevere and on the way to the observation deck on the Hill of Janikul. The monastery is amazingly beautiful, quiet, soothing abode; great place for relaxation of the soul or body.

  • On the road from the Vatican on Ânikul usually try to peek at Sant Onofrio. Often do not get to the calendar (Temple opened in 9:00-13:00, closed on Saturday), but the patio is always open. The altars are decorated with the works of 15-17 centuries, among which there are familiar names of artists. In the temple buried the famous Italian poet Torquato Tasso.
