Wonderful Twin Churches at Rome, Italy


 Twin Churches at Rome, Italy

These churches are located at the southern edge of Piazza del Popolo. On the left of this picture is Santa Maria di Montesanto Church which was built in 1679. On the right is Santa Maria dei Miracoli which was built in 1681.

Admissions to both churches are free. Just take note that all churches in Rome have dress codes. Male and female should wear minimum clothing that covers both shoulders and knees. 

Opening hours:
Monday to Saturday - 6 am to 1 pm / 5 pm to 7 pm
Sunday - 8 am to 1 pm / 5 pm to 7 pm

My personal experience:

During our trip in Rome, Italy, I was so impressed with the architectures around. Every church that I got the chance to see had its' own distinct characteristic, even the twin churches above. When my husband and I entered Santa Maria di Montesanto church, the choir was practicing. Their voices echoed all over the church that made our experience more interesting. To be honest, we don’t understand the lyrics since it was Italian. But they really sounded very good, so we just sat down there and listened until they finished their piece. Besides, not all day you can see and hear them. It’s part of the experience.

Santa Maria dei Miracoli church has almost the same structure as of the church on the left. They both have different chapels inside dedicated to different saints which I will elaborate and feature on my next posts.

Overall, they are really wonderful twin churches.

  9. So they are twin churches? They are really beautiful! It seems like it is just one church building and the wonders of photoshop made some good sights. Really, a nice scene to look at!

  10. At first I looked to see if this was a camera trick, but no, they are two distinct churches. Quite amazing. Listening to a choir in one of these old churches must have been something to remember.
