  • It is a church in the Trastevere district first visited! In a historical atmosphere, in the basement it ruins what was exhibited. That the Church is a small church, but impressed the great atmosphere!

  • This thousand year old little church has finally been restored, and is open as part of a museum with an 8 euro entrance fee. It's attached to a spectacular Baroque hidden garden, the biggest open space in this part of Trastevere. Well worth a visit.
  • Sunny Sunday walk thru Trastevere, 1000 years old "Church" , nice area to walk by and enjoy great views and antique streets and buildings...
  • If this place were in London it would register thousands of visitors every month... In Rome it is lost between wonders of various Foggia and complex invoice and it is difficult to linger in this small church, which draws its origins around the year 1000 and has been, later over the centuries, reattached in various ways. But if you have the patience to do so you will find yourself in front of a small architectural masterpiece with inside jewels and relics of unheard-of memory, try it

  • The church of St. Mary in the Chapel is a church in Rome, in the Trastevere Ward, located in St. Mary's Lane in the Chapel. This church is remembered for the first time by a stone, placed on the right as soon as entered, reminiscent of the day of consecration (March 25, 1090), which took place by Pope Urban II, and its name to pineam (i.e. at the pine congna). The current name has an uncertain origin, and several interpretations are: the most complex, and also the least likely, refers precisely to the entrance gravety, the fourth stic reads: "que appell(atur) a pinea(m) for ep(iscop)os Ubaldu"; the expression que appell ad, became in the popular chapel jargon; others (Nibby, Hulsen) believe that the name chapel derives from the Latin cupella, that is, barrel; proof of this is the fact that in the 15th century the Barilai Company had its seat in this church; the simplest solution, however, leads this denomination back to a pre-existing chapel or oratory on the site of the current church. The church is not mentioned much in the centuries following the 11th. In addition to the consecration of an altar in 1113, the church is remembered when, for reasons of stability, the right aisle was closed to the public and in 1391 Andreozzo Ponziani, francesca Romana's father-in-law, founded, after restoration, the hospital of the Holy Saviour. At her death, the hospital remained entrusted to Francesca and the church then passed to the Oblates of Tor de' Specchi, who sold her in 1540 to the company of the barilari. The Doria-Pamphilj practiced patronage there and Innocent X gave the property in 1650 to Donna Olimpia who, buying various land around her, built a garden of delights called "the baths of Donna Olimpia", overlooking the Tiber. You can still see the facade from the Ripa waterfront, behind a modern wall. Subsequently the church became dilapidated, it was closed, reopened, changed hands several times, until in 1797 it underwent a first series of major restorations by the Sodalizio of the Sailors of Ripa and Ripetta. Other restorations were undertaken by the doria-Pamphilj owners, in the mid-nineteenth century, under the direction of Andrea Busiri Vici; with these works the church took its current appearance, and two new factory bodies were built on the sides of the casino, installing a hospice (still functioning as the "retirement home of the Foundation of Santa Francesca Romana", contracted with the health public), and keeping the garden. The facade of the church is the result of the restoration of the Busiri Vici, while the bell tower is still the medieval one (12th century). The interior is presented in three aisles, divided between them by ancient columns of bare, that is, recovered from other previous buildings. The interior decoration is the result of the restoration work of the nineteenth century and almost nothing remains of medieval. From the courtyard of the church you can access the hospice

  • Magnificent. Little-known shame. If you read history you understand its importance in the past.
