Overview

The saint to whom this church is dedicated lived in the Trastevere district of the city in the 15th Century. She devoted her life to helping the poor and the sick and founded an association for women on their own. It was sanctified 200 years later and was dedicated to a church called the Santa Maria Nuova. In the church you can see a slab of stone that bears the imprints left by the knees of St Peter and St Paul. Every year on March 9, Romans drive here, as St Francesca Romana is the patron saint of cars.
