Church of Santa Maria dell'Anima

Local name: Chiesa di Santa Maria dell'Anima

Santa Maria dell'Anima in Rome is a Renaissance church founded in the fourteenth century. Initially, it was a temple belonging to the German community in Rome (Kirche der deutschsprachigen katholischen Gemeinde in Rom). You can admire many valuable religious monuments, including frescoes created by Giovanni Francesco Grimaldi.

The temple contains the grave of Hadrian VI, whose plate was designed by Baltazar Peruzzi. Allegories of cardinal virtues were presented: Justice, Wisdom, Courage and Moderation. You can also see the tomb of Pope Adrian VI, designed by Baldassare Peruzzi.

In the inner courtyard of the church, visitors will have the opportunity to admire the historic fragments of ancient buildings that were discovered here during archaeological excavations.
