This is a quiet little church that often is filled with locals dropping by during their lunch time. Close to Galleria Alberto Sordi and Piazza Colonna, it's worth a visit if you are in the area. The typical Baroque exterior gives way to a somewhat dark interior. On the right side, the first chapel holds a miraculous well as well... More

This small church is amongst the most beautiful. Rather than the main altar more attention is gathered to the back of the church on the right upon entering. This is because miraculous water flows from the well and believers are given small disposable cups to drink some water from. This miraculous water flows from the well which a painting of... More

Santa Maria in Via was ordered constructed by Pope Innocent VIII and it was built in 1491-1513. The decoration of the church is simple. The main altar is quite good and there is a dome over it. The church has little natural light.

In 1165, it was recorded as Santa Maria in Via, which means "on the Way," referencing nearby... More

This was a church that was not on the plans and that we visited by chance. It is just behind the Galleria Alberto Sordi (main entrance in Via del Corso) and it seemed that wasn't visited by tourists very often. Don't expect the environment of the big churches, it is a church "for the romans" in the way that it... More

This is a nice little church with a lovely facade, but a rather ordinary and small interior. Is it worth a visit? Well, if you can spare 5 minutes and the church is on your way from point A to point B, then yes. Otherwise - it's certainly not a "must see" in Rome.
