  • Next to St. Peter's Basilica, there is this small church, full of frescoes, in the heart of the village. In front of the historic Hospital Santo Spirito that valw also humana visit.

  • And Rome keeps making you tick extraordinary churches where you just do not expect it, here next to St. Peter and the Longtevere, in a street of the unknown, dilapid but still beautiful Borgo Ward that extends to the two sides of the Via della Conciliazione. The church from the outside is impressive, inside a true enchantment of sixteenth-century frescoes and not yet baroque (which is not too frequent) to be enjoyed with your eyes in recollection, recollection allowed by a church a stone's throw from St. Peter's but snubbed by tourists. The interior is really large and the amount of frescoed walls also amazes those who are prepared for the ornate interiors of the Roman churches.

  • My favourite place in Rome.i can't explain the living presence of the mercyful Lord... It's amazing.A prayerful atmosphere.When I kneel and pray at the grotto of mercy Jesus, I experience an unknown joy which God alone could provide.Have mercy on the Whole world have mercy....
  • Fabulous place for an English mass on a Sunday in Rome at 1000 right next to the Vatican
  • Very old and very nice Church near S.Peter basilica in Rome, surely worth a visit but it is outmatched by the bigger one nearby
  • A stunning hidden gem of Rome. English mass on Sundays at 10am. There are relics of saint Faustina and Saint John Paul 2
  • Absolutely beautiful.
