Overview

This church was built to house an icon of the Madonna that was venerated with particular fervor by the Romans - they held it responsible for the miracle of the liberation from the plague. The construction works were entrusted to the architect Carlo Reinaldi. The Baroque design is less ornate than others of its time, with a fa├žade devoid of statues or stuccoes. There are works by Luca Giordano, Sebastiano Conca and Baciccia. Among the artefacts worth a look are a portable altar and a Byzantine mosaic in the Capella delle Reliquie, and the beautiful gilded shrine by Antonio de Rossi, bearing the image of the Madonna.
