Church Tourist Spot
The church of Saint Anthony in Campo Marzio, known as Saint Anthony of the Portuguese, is a Baroque Roman Catholic titular church in Rome, dedicated to Saint Anthony of Lisbon.Established as titulus S. Antonii in Campo Martio in 2001, it is currently assigned to Cardinal Manuel José Macário do Nascimento Clemente.HistoryThe national church of the Portuguese people was designed by Martino Longhi the Younger (1638), Carlo Rainaldi (1657), and finally by Cristoforo Schor (1697), replacing a 15th-century church built under the initial patronage of Cardinal António Martins de Chaves. The ribbed dome (1674–76) was designed by Rainaldi.The roof is stuccoed by Pompeo Gentile and frescoed by Salvatore Nobili. In the first chapel, the neoclassic monument to Alexandre de Sousa Holstein was sculpted by Antonio Canova in 1806; the second chapel has a Baptism of Christ by Giacinto Calandrucci, and a Circumcision of John the Baptist by Nicolas Lorrain. A second monument in the chapel is also by Calandrucci.The main altar has an Apparition of the Virgin. Another chapel includes a funerary monument to ambassador Manuel Pereira de Sampaio by Pietro Bracci from 1750. The second chapel has three artworks by Lorrain: a Nativity, Adoration by the Magi, and Repose in Egypt. The first chapel on the left has an altarpiece of Madonna with child and Saints Antonio of Padua and Francis by Antoniazzo Romano.

  • I has no idea that there was such a nice church with portuguese "background" in Rome. It's kind of hidden. From the putside the state of the art baroque façade is rather small, but the inside is GREAT...  more »

  • The church of Saint Anthony in Campo Marzio, known as Saint Anthony of the Portuguese is a Baroque Roman Catholic titular church in Rome
  • Exuberant gilded stucco work interior with a handful of impressive artworks.
  • This is a small church we found by chance in a narrow street whilst walking from Piazza Navonna. It has a spectacular interior design which is well worth seeing if you like visiting churches. Probably one which would not normally be on your list of places to visit, but do check it out.
  • Beautiful small church that we found just passing by, a must see
  • Exceptional !
