Since Imperial times Rome has been in constant connection with the history of the Christian faith. Thus it is certainly a living museum of religious history, attraction and art. Every corner displays a different worship site, shrine or prayer center, most of these with centuries of history.
There are always more churches to see, and here I do not intend to present all or even the most important churches of the city, but just a sampling of the varied array. Each one is different, they are the reflection of devotion and political struggles alike. They are temples of faith and monuments of human achievement.
There are literally hundreds of Churches in Rome. One can spend months and never complete a visit of them all. Most churches safeguard amazing paintings and sculptures of famous artists. It is free to visit these churches, so one has to take advantage of and enjoy some of the finest art and architecture of the world in these settings.
What it is true is that it is impossible to visit the eternal city and to not dedicate most of one’s time visiting Churches. We invite you to click through the slideshow and enjoy this collection of pictures as an introduction to the beauties that await the visitor in the churches of Rome.
