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.

  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.

Love and Marriage

Being married for more than thirteen years does not make me an expert to relationship and family. But it is certain that those years made me the better person I am now and I hope that it is the same with my husband. I personally believe that keeping your marriage healthy, sparkling and smooth boils down to open communication and plain understanding. Aside from these two factors, there are other ways to keep you tied up to the man or woman you say "I Do". According to  Merriam- Webster  Dictionary, "Marriage is  the state of being united to a person of the opposite sex as husband or wife in a consensual and contractual relationship recognized by law". But it is actually more than that. Time, effort, love, affection, acceptance, faithfulness and sincerity goes with marriage. If you are just starting a wonderful married life and you want to keep it till you are both old, you may want to consider the following ways to keep your happy lives together. Put Jesus Christ in
