Church of Santa Maria della Pace (Chiesa di Santa Maria della Pace) Tours

star-4.5
33 Reviews
Church of Santa Maria della Pace (Chiesa di Santa Maria della Pace)
Not far from the busy and popular Piazza Navona in Rome is the Church of Santa Maria della Pace (Chiesa di Santa Maria della Pace), which has a Baroque facade on a 15th-century church.

The front of the existing church was redesigned in the mid-17th century at the behest of Pope Alexander VII, including the lovely semicircular entrance lined with columns. The architect, Pietro da Cortona, also had some neighboring buildings destroyed to open up the little piazza around the church more.

Inside, the main attractions are artistic and predate the 17th-century work on the facade. A large Raphael fresco of the “Four Sibyls” is over the altar in the Chigi Chapel, painted in 1514. The Ponzetti Chapel contains a Peruzzi fresco of the “Madonna and Child,” and Antonio da Sangallo the Younger designed the Cesi Chapel.

Behind the church is the rest of the complex, including a large cloister built by Bramante between 1500-1504. Today, part of the cloister serves as an exhibition space for which tickets are required. Exhibitions rotate regularly.

Practical Info

In the coffee shop on the top level of the cloisters, there is a Sybils’ Hall that has a glass wall that looks right into the church. From this vantage point, you get a wonderful view of Raphael’s “Four Sibyls,” and there’s an audio-visual guide to explain what you’re seeing.
Address: Via Arco della Pace 5, Rome, Lazio 00186, Italy
Hours: Mon, Wed, & Sat 9-11:50am

Raphael and Caravaggio in the Roman Churches - Private Day Tour from RomeBus Tours

SPECIAL OFFER

Raphael and Caravaggio in the Roman Churches - Private Day Tour from Rome

star-5
The masterful paintings of 16th-century artist Michelangelo Merisi (1571-1610), better known as Caravaggio, continue to fascinate more than 400 years after his death. The artist's paintings combine with gritty, realistic observation of the human state, both physical and emotional, and make dramatic use of chiaroscuro. Today Rome hosts about 25 Caravaggio masterpieces that can be viewed by the public: several can be seen in the churches, others by some of the most important art collections in palaces and museums. Raffaello Sanzio known as Raphael was an Italian painter and architect of the High Renaissance. Together with Michelangelo and Leonardo da Vinci, which forms the traditional trinity of great masters of that period. Raphael was enormously productive, running an unusually large workshop and, despite his death at 37, leaving a large body of work. Many of his works are found in the Vatican but also in some churches.
