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.

  • 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 »
  • I visited today this beautiful church in a Rome Sun in a hot sun at the end of April. The Church is situated in the heart of rione Campus Martius, near the old osteria dell'Orso, and is the National Church of the Portuguese community in Rome. It was dedicated to Saint Anthony of Padua Church-which is actually saying-Portuguese Lisbon, the Interior of the Church is rich and the gold color. The dome is beautiful. The new landmark organ that is present in the Church was opened in 2008: is Grand and beautiful. Are held throughout the year many concerts for organ sonatas. In the Church are available brochures that indicate the program and concert dates from Wikipedia I read and copy that: "the pipe organ Mascioni della chiesa di Sant'Antonio dei Portoghesi is a proportional electronic transmission and has 60 registers, of which several obtained by derivation and extension. The barrels are located in two different places within the Church: most of them are overall Baroque Choir and chest, opposite the façade; part is located on the left wall of the right arm of the transept, choir. The choir opposite the façade, is characterized by the extension in the first chapel on the left and right side; eighteenth-century case, supposedly inspired in form to the Doria Pamphilj Gallery in via del Corso, built between 1731 and 1734 by Gabriele Valvassori, [7] presents an exhibition divided into three fields and consists of 25 Main jangling canes arranged in unique Spire with a MITRE aligned horizontally. The console is independent and mobile located in the floor, generally in the transept near the presbytery; It was opened in September 2015, has the same features of the previous one to four manuals, and is a modern interpretation of the French organ builder Aristide Cavaillé-Coll. The Church was founded in 1445 by Cardinal Antonio Martínez de Castro at a hospice for pilgrims established by Portuguese noblewoman Guiomar from Lisbon. Later, around 1638, was re-dedicated to Saint Anthony of Padua or from Lisbon (Portuguese: António de Lisboa), aka Fernando Martins de Bulhões (Lisbon, 15 August 1195 – 13 June 1231) was a Portuguese priest and religious belonging to the order of Friars Minor, canonized by Pope Gregory IX in 1232 and declared a doctor of the Church in 1946. Died at 36 years. " The exterior of the façade of the Church, above, has the coat of arms of the Kingdom of Portugal

  • 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 !

Where to stay in Rome

For easy foot access to most of the city's main historical sites, consider staying in Rome's old town center. The area is conveniently placed for public transport, only a walk away from the city's main railway station. Accommodations here span all hotels sectors, from cheap hostels to luxury brand names. To avoid the steep prices and overcrowding of the town center, explore the hotels in the inner suburbs of Rome. They offer comfortable rooms and excellent food at a fraction of the price charged by the centrally located hotel chains. Another affordable option is the area around Vatican, which boasts a good selection of family-owned B&Bs.
