Santa Maria dell'Anima (Our Lady of the Soul) is a very colorful and lovely church, the home of German-speaking Catholics in Rome, just a few steps away from Piazza Navona. It is packed full of paintings, funeral monuments, and stained glass. The ceiling and marble work are particularly lovely. Definitely worth a visit if you are at Piazza Navona.

Yes, in Rome are 350+ churches, and this little one can't be compered to the St. Peters, but if you have a few minutes left, don't wait. It's definitely worth it :)

A well maintained church and the German national church of Rome, you can't visit without taking a few photos of the beautiful interior. Just 1 block west of Piazza Navona.

The Church of Santa Maria dell'Anima (Our Lady of the Soul) is located just west of Piazza Navona near the Church of Santa Maria della Pace. It is currently the national church of Germany and hospice of German-speaking people in Rome. The church is still undergoing a vast restoration, but the spectacular interior is now just breathtakingly bright and fresh.... More

I was born in Utrecht (Netherlands) in 1959. About 200 yards away from the spot where 500 years earlier in 1459 Adrianus Florisz Boeyens was born, who in 1507 became the tutor of the later emperor Charles V, in 1512 his counsellor, and who in 1522 became the first (and so far only) Dutch pope. They say he was so... More

I stopped by this little church on my way to the Brueghal exhibition at Il Choreto del Bramante. Interior of church has dazzling marble and decor - not large so it was a quick and pleasant stop...

I stumbled across this beautiful church. It serves as the German speaking church in Rome, and there is a full schedule of services in German. It is a very beautiful church - although when I visited it had lots of scaffold up inside for renovations.
