“Yes, I have finally arrived to this Capital of the world! I now see all the dreams of my youth coming to life … Only in Rome is it possible to understand Rome.” – Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

Rome has around 900 churches in total, so it is really the best place in the world to visit some of these wonderful churches. It is one of the most beautiful city in the world…what with its breathtaking architecture, its ruins, its art and as i’ve mentioned before, its churches!

The Papal Basilica of St. Peter is an Italian Renaissance church in the Vatican city. It is one of the largest churches in the world and it is visited by thousands of pilgrims and tourists every month.

The small Church of St Louie of the French is in between Piazza Navona and the Pantheon, so you will definitely be able to see it when you walk around this place. This is the official national church of France in Rome.

What is amazing about this church, is that you dont’t have to go to a museum to see art masterpieces. St Louie the French is home to three of Caravaggio paintings, The Martyrdom of St Matthew, The Calling of St Matthew and the Saint Matthew and the Angel

The Pantheon Basilica is a former Roman temple, but is now a church. The most fascinating part of the Pantheon is its dome. Almost 2000 years after it was built, it is still the world’s largest unreinforced concrete dome.

The Pantheon was a pagan building until Emperor Phocas gave it to Pope Boniface IV in 609. Since then, the Pantheon Basilica was Christianized and is now dedicated to St Mary and Martyrs.

The Pantheon is also a Mausoleum, having the tombs of Raphael, Annibale Carracci (both painters) and Baldassare Peruzzi (an architect) to name of few that are buried here.

The Santa Maria Magdalena Church is a Roman Catholic church in Rome near the Pantheon. This church is dedicated to the Ministers of the Sick.

The Church of the martyr St Prisca on the Aventine Hill, one of Rome’s most famous hills.

The Church of Santa Maria di Loreto is a 16th century church in Rome located just across the street from the Trajan’s Column. (A Roman triumphal column)
