  • This church is dedicated to St. Alphonsus Liguori, the founder of the Redemptorists. It is not a typical Roman church where you can find famous art pieces, mosaics or relics of Saints. But for those who have a special devotion to Our Lady of Perpetual Help, this is the church to go, as the original icon can be found here. I spent some time here in prayer and it was very peaceful. Several of my petitions were also answered.
  • Beautiful basilica dedicated to the Roman martyrs Ss pradessi collecting the martyr's blood with a sponge S prudenza tomb also Reliquary of the pillar of Christ scoured here
