The twin churches on the Piazza del Popolo have always intrigued us; and, we have been trying to see the insides for many years. We thought we hit the jackpot when I read that they would be open. Alas, only Santa Maria dei Miracoli was open. The church was built in 1681. Even though they call this one of the twin churches, they are not – they look similar on the front and one church is actually bigger than the other. This one is dedicated to Our Lady, who is venerated here as "Our Lady of the Miracles," because of a miraculous icon of her over the high altar. Unlike her twin, this church is not a minor basilica. The domes were restored in the early 19th century and covered in slate tiles, an unusual technique in Rome, giving the domes a smoky color which can be seen from the terrace of Pincio.

This “twin” to the other church, that also flanks Via del Corso, is from the 17th century. This church is not considered a Basilica, unlike the other church. On the exterior, there are a few notable differences between the two. This dome is octagonal and the campanile is of a different design. It has a large portico, covering the main entry portal, supported by 4 large columns above which is an inscription that mentions Cardinal Gastaldi and an empty tympanum that looks to be awaiting a sculpture. Two side doors sit at an angle just off the portico. It was not open on the day and time we visited.

Santa Maria dei Miracoli is one of the two baroque church on Piazza del Popolo. It is nice inside, particularly the icon above the altar.

There are two churches at Piazza del Popolo, just next to Via del Corso. One is Santa Maria dei Miracoli, we entered and it is typical baroque church. The second one was closed.

Coming From the flamino metro, walking through the gate, one of the first things you see within Piazza del Popolo, is one of two (almost identical) churches that are architecturally stunning. Within the interior the highlight for us was seeing the painting/icon of the mother and child above the altar.

Santa Maria dei Miracoli is part of the so-called twin churches in Piazza dell Popolo, the other one being the Santa Maria di Montesanto. Both are almost identical and just as beautiful. However they have some differences. The Santa Maria dei Miracoli is indeed a really lovely church, in the baroque style and you feel elevated as soon as you step inside the building. It's definitely worth spending some time inside, to rest and at the same time contemplate, if you are so inclined.

Simpler than some basilicas that were built in later centuries, it is an impressive dome cum altar nevertheless.

There are two identical churches stand side by side making Via del Corso being sandwiched by them. It is a nice sight to see this identical churches from the Piaza del Popolo. the one i'm reviewing now is the church of Santa Maria dei Miracoli. Looked same with the other but not.

To spot one is the belfry which is smaller than that of the Montesanto. the interior also made the difference. But while inside one noticed that it is not a museum but an active serving church which need everyone to keep the solemnity of the place. Tourists were welcome but photo shoot should be done after the church service.
