  • The Church is beautiful, has a coffered ceiling once that takes your breath away, Baroque elements. Pity that ruin everything there are two grasse Gypsies who harass anyone entering and outside have set up some real couches. I am surprised that Pope who preaches the Welcome to the desperate allow a few steps from St Peter there are a multitude of homeless or Gypsies who camp out beneath the facades of every church, a real shame

  • This church was very pretty inside. I wouldn't go out of my way to see it, but if you're at the Vatican, stop by. It seems like a church that doesn't get a ton of tourists but gets heavy use by the lo...  more »

  • Peaceful place to visit. Well maintained church
  • The church is located just a couple of blocks from St. Peter's Square. On this Sunday we made the very short walk to St. Peter's and prayed the Angelus with Pope Francis along with thousands of other pilgrims afterwards. This made for a wonderful and holy experience.
  • +JMJ...When in Rome on pilgrimage, 2000 to 2009, this Church was one for regular devotional visitation to join the locals to pray the Divine Mercy Chaplet and the Stations of the Cross at the 3 o'clock hour. Tremendously spiritually uplifting being united with many who I couldn't speak to because I don't speak Italian, but who I could unit in prayer because of the language of love of God and neighbor. And, as with many of the Churches that I would visit (as many as my feet and legs would take me to each day!) there is found in this Church artistic treasures which will not be found anywhere else! A joy to visit for personal devotions, to join others or to just take in all the beautiful artwork.
  • Very spiritual. Please make sure to be respectful as this is a functioning church.
  • This is a very beautiful church very close to St. Peter's adorned with Renaissance frescoes and statuary. It also includes a niche featuring a large portrait of the late Pope John Paul II. We attended a Mass in Polish (4pm local time, Sunday) and wondered if the church had a special meaning for "Saint John Paul the Great" during his life. Worth a visit for certain.
