  • It is one of the oldest churches in Rome,it is located near Latin gate in a quiet area and is close to Ancient Appia Street.

  • On the alleged site of the martyrdom of Saint John, in a very quiet area near the Porta Latina, the Church shows beautiful glimpses of the various periods, from the 8th century to the present day. A truly unique experience.

  • Charming church in Central but quiet and secluded. It is located in a hidden Street accessed from piazzale Porta Latina. Very tall steeple, portico and pozzo. Very nice inside (wooden ceiling, frescos, etc). Great wedding

  • Attended a private dinner inside the residence of the Japanese Ambassador in Rome, Italy. The architecture is stunning! The grounds are to die for, and the fact that it sits beside one of the oldest churches in the city, is no small feat. Also helped that I was knocking back saké mid-viewing.
  • Got married here 25 years ago. Still stunning!
  • There are antique paintings in the Church.. church building is attached to the Aurelian walls..
  • The church is open from 7:30 to 12:30 and 15:00 to 18:00. Mass on Sundays and solemnities is at: 8:00. 10:00, 11:30. There is no weekday Mass advertised, but the Rosminian brethren who run the church have a Mass in their convent chapel at 6:45, Monday to Saturday. If you ring at the front door beforehand you are welcome to join them -but not after the Mass has already started! This interesting old church might be late 5th century, but nobody knows for sure because there is no documentary evidence. It has important mediaeval frescoes. The secluded location means that it is usually peaceful.
