  • In a small square of via del Corso one can admire the sumptuous and solemn facade of this church, somewhat concave and symmetrical; the Interior is impressive due to the single nave with side chapels; paintings and beautiful times divided into particular geometric shapes with bright colors in many areas.

  • Beautiful church located on the Marcello-square. Admission is free. Particular to just within walking and your eyes to look forward to.

  • The Church of San Marcello al Corso is situated in a small square on the right of Via del Corso coming from Piazza Venezia. The façade by Carlo Fontana has Baroque statues and reliefs. In the same place there was first a church-among other things with the entrance located at the opposite of the current-which was completely destroyed in 1519 from a raging fire but amid the rubble the faithful found miraculously intact the large wooden crucifix which has now been placed in a special Chapel. In 1527 Pope Leo X commissioned so Jacopo Sansovino to rebuild the Church, which took over, given the prolonged time to various adverse events including an inundation, Antonio da Sangallo which led her to the end. The Interior has a nave with 5 chapels on each side with semicircular apses. About the crucifix is considered miraculous apart have been found intact after the burning of the original church, partly because the Romans during the plague of 1522 decided to carry it through the whole city, 16-day procession lasted from 4 to 20 August and it seems that on the latter date the plague ceased. So it is traditional to take him in procession to Saint Peter's Basilica during the Jubilees. The Church of San Marcello is nice and contains works concerned.

  • Beautifully decorated church. Well worth a peek inside. Remember to look up, the ceiling is amazing.
  • Walking down the road and almost walked passed. Went inside and found a little gem. It's good to look past the obvious sights and look for gems like this.
  • Easy to peek in heading up from Piazza Venezia en route to Trevi Fountain. Very quaint and beautiful inside.
  • Little gem off the street. Poke your head in.
  • An absolutely beautiful church - they also held few others opera chorale sessions in October!
