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

A much less well known church, you'll find the hordes of tourists going to visit the near by Santa Maria Maggiore instead and passing right by this location. While that is an amazing building itself, do yourself a favor and stop in here for a...More

I was fortunate to attend an ordination to the Diaconate at this Church. The architecture was most impressive as was the manner in which the altar was presented both for Easter and for this ceremony. The interior decorations mostly of marble was awesome. It also...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.

I was thrilled to see an icon from Crete that carries a long history. The chapel is very well designed and maintained

This church is not one visited by many tourists which is a shame as it is very beautiful and in many ways unique as it is a rare example of Neo Gothic architecture in Rome. Strangely it was designed by a Scottish architect called George...More

Reminds me of the small churches back in NYC. The icon is beautiful. This church might be lesser known, but it is well worth a visit.

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.

Esquilino
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
