‪It needs some maintenance work, yet very beautiful‬

‪It is located at the foot of the Tarpeian Rock (overlooking the Roman Forum). The Tarpeian Rock was a place of execution where condemned criminals were thrown from the cliff in early Roman times and hanged in the Middle-ages. In 1385 Giordanello of the Alberini family, a condemned nobleman, paid two florins for an image of the Virgin Mary to be placed here to console the condemned who were taken here. Hence the name of the church. At the beginning, a small chapel was built around the icon of the Virgin Mary. Some time later, in the 16th century a church was built on the same site. It was built in 1470 and rebuilt in 1583-1600. In 1600 a church designed by Martino Longhi the Elder replaced the chapel. Some minor guilds contributed to financing the construction of the church and in return they were assigned a chapel. The façade, which rises in white travertine on a large modern staircase, has two orders: the lower one, divided into five spans by Corinthian pilasters, and with three portals, is a work of Martino Longhi. The upper one was completed in 1827 by Pasquale Belli. The four statues standing on the corners of the attic are 19th century, and represent the four prophets Isaiah, Jeremiah, Ezekiel and Daniel. The interior has three naves divided by pillars, and has three apses and five chapels on each side. On the 'cantoria' to the left of the main altar is the pipe organ, built by Everardo Troncaro in 1646. Among the works of art that the church houses, we were able to admire the frescoes by Taddeo Zuccari of 1556 with the Stories of the Passion, the Madonna with Child and Saints by Livio Agresti (1575), the fifth chapel on the left (Cappella dei Vignaroli) adorned by frescoes by il Pomarancio, and finally the Mystical Marriage of St. Catherine of Alexandria, marble relief by Raffaello da Montelupo (1530), a pupil of Michelangelo. Probably the most important work of art is the first chapel in the right aisle, frescoed by Taddeo Zuccari when he was only 27 years old. Some works are remarkable but unfortunately in a state of neglect and increasingly damaged by humidity. The church is very beautiful but perhaps it would be necessary to consider the support of the artistic authorities of the municipality of Rome for some needed maintenance works. Recommended.‬

‪We found ourselves in a church on the way from Campidoglio to the island of Tiberina. The name of the church characterizes its purpose. There was a scaffold in front of the church and in the church the criminals sentenced to death prayed before execution. The Church of the Last Consolation before the scaffold was designed by Martino Longhi in the XVI century. However, the facade was completed only at the beginning of the XIX century.‬

‪Church built in 1470 and the name is from the possibility for people sentenced to death to have a consolation from Saint Mary.
This church was close to scaffold.
I found it closed.‬

‪I was really disappointed in this church. I view churches as respectful places of worship. I want them to be holy places. When I walked into this church it truly was stunning. It still is, but then I saw the "art work" by Paolo Gallinaro. It was childish and took the spot of chapels inside this church. It was very disappointing to see the comical childish statues in here. Can't wait for them to be gone. ‬

‪This church is near one of the walk-in entrances to the Pallatine hill and well-worth the visit. I was at first worried that the darkness of the interior would not allow us to appreciate all of the art work, but as we approached each painting perfectly positioned lights would come on. I suspect that this was designed to preserve the colors of the paintings. The outside of the church is a perfect place to get panoramic views of the area.‬

‪What a lovely old church...so much history to see here in this part of the ancient city. Like most of the churches we visited in Rome, this one was full of beautiful paintings and statues. You can't visit Rome without visiting some of these amazing churches and basilica's. ‬

‪Beneath this Church is the Crypt of the Capucins (an order of monks). It is free to enter but a donation is expected on leaving. Inside is a long corridor with barred rooms to the left. Each room contains patterns made from the bones of long dead monks. There is even a skeleton of a child. It may seem macabre to visit such a place but it is so peaceful and unusual that it is worth visiting if only for the memento mori - death waits for everyone but it can be beautiful.‬
