What a beautiful church. It was a pleasant walk in Trastavere, but more pleasing to sit and meditate in pray in such a serene setting.

It's my favourite place, to go, eat and relax in this lovely and it narrows street makes a mistery and enigmatic place to walk and smell the flavour of the pizzerias and tratorias. Highly recommended.

Books and webs tell to go to Transtevere, but I thought it was sort of over rated comments. I was right - this is not an outstanding church or anything. Sure it is beautiful, but unfortunately there are so many fine institutions in Roma area. Perhaps if you go this one first you will get the highest score..?

Piazza is in the heart of Trastevere ... large square with a fountain that we're told was designed to provide lots of seating for the neighbourhood on its steps. The Church itself dates from the 300's ... spend some time experiencing it, enjoy the mosaics. I agree not a must see ... but if you're nearby it's certainly worth investing... More

I didn't go in but there isn't much to this church in Trastevere except for some mosaics on the front. Still cool to see though if you take a leisurely walk through Trastevere!

Beautiful little church in a picturesque square in Travestere. We were staying nearby so passed the church almost daily until one night we popped in after dinner. Beautiful and so quiet and peaceful after the hustlers crowding the square. Lots of lovely restaurants nearby as well so a great place for an evening stroll and dinner.

We sat out in the piazza and watched Sunday churchgoers entering and leaving the building. It was magical!
