(4.8/5 based on 50 reviews on the web)
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.

  • This is the really great part about visiting Rome -- just walk around a beautiful area, and fine wonderful little sights, like this church, that you never really expected. I loved stumbling upon this ...  more »
  • Despite my repeated trips to Rome for the first time I visited this wonderful Church. It was a wonderful surprise. A must for the paintings, frescoes and marble tones absolutely unique. Beautifully preserved and restored. Unique atmosphere that drives you towards meditation. To see absolutely.

  • After several times I visited Rome I decided to get away a bit from those that are the usual tourist destinations, so wandering in the Centre of the eternal city, I discovered this little gem dedicated to Sant'Antonio. A real treasure chest with gold and decorated his walls covered with beautiful purple and green marbles. A true wonder.

  • 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.
  • Really good church.
  • 教堂历史悠久,参观是免费的,进去后感觉还是蛮神圣的
  • Small church, very pretty, table and beautiful to see!
