  • Impressive, he stands in the eyes as soon as you can see the "caciarona" square of Ponte Milvio. Greek cross plan with two side entrances. The dome and its lantern are beautiful. To visit.

  • I could not visit the church from the inside, but from outside, coming from Ponte Milvio, it looks majestic and solemn. On the square of the Roman Movida, even at night offers a great light show.

  • Beautiful church in center of ponte milvio
  • One of Rome's great modern domed churches, but a rather disappointing interior. Mass is celebrated: Saturdays: 19,00 Sundays: 8,30 – 9,30 – 10,30 – 12,00 – 19,00 Weekdays: 8,30 - 19,00
