This is a beautiful church, easily missed (as there is no shortage of nice churches in Rome). However, worth a visit. The highlight for us was viewing the icon of the Virgin Mary, created in the 14th century, its original home Crete. Definitely worth a...More

This church houses the famous icon of Our Lady of Perpetual Succour. Interesting historical links to the UK. The fact that the church is in Gothic style makes it a welcome relief from the predominant Baroque style mostly seen in Rome.

This church houses the original icon of the our lady of perpetual succor. Very near to the St Mary basilica.

Definitely worth making a stope in this church between St. Mary Major and St. John Lateran. Read the history of the icon and the many miracles attributed to Our Lady of Perpetual Help.

Old school vibe from the very beginning is the only
way to describe the Esquilino neighbourhood. The
Esquilino takes pride in being one of the oldest areas
in Rome for its key location on one of the city’s
famous seven hills. From an ancient neighbourhood to
its modern incarnation as a multicultural hub,
Esquilino always has something going on—polyglot
