SANTA FRANCESCA ROMANA: the church was dedicated to Santa Francesca Romana, patron saint of drivers (whose festivity takes place on March 9), who became a saint in 1608 due to her efforts at helping the poor and sick people. The structure incorporated the oratory of Santi Pietro e Paolo that Pope Paolo I managed to have in the porch of the Tempio di Venere during C. VIII. The church was rebuilt made order by Pope Onorio II during C. XIII and often remodeled later on. The façade, by Carlo Lombardi (1615), is all made of white travertine and rises up in the middle, with a tympanum crowned by statues, with an order into two couples of pilaster strips. In the upper part it includes a balcony and it is joint by a porch that extends itself downwards. The high Romanesque bell-tower is adorned by double mullioned windows. The interior has a single nave with side chapels and a rich panelled ceiling. In the church one finds a stone slab with the imprints, as one says, of San Pietro and San Paolo’s knees. Ever since 1352, the church is officiated by the Benedettini from Monteoliveto.
