The Church of SS. Claudius and Andrew of the Burgundians (Santi Claudio e Andrea dei Borgognoni, Saints-Claude-et-André-des-Bourguignons) is a Roman Catholic church dedicated to Saint Claudius of Besançon and the apostle Saint Andrew. It is one of the national churches in Rome dedicated to France (Free County of Burgundy). Built from 1728 to 1730, the church was designed by French architect Antoine Dérizet.
Burgundians, mostly bankers and merchants, were present in Rome since the 15th century. Following the Thirty Years' War (1618–1648) and the annexation by the Kingdom of France of the Free County of Burgundy (previously ruled by the Holy Roman Empire and today's Franche-Comté), the community grew up to twelve thousand people. In 1652 founded a national brotherhood and bought an oratory near the present Place of San Silvestro. In 1662, a hospice for pilgrims was opened near the church. Pope Innocent XI proclaimed the oratory national church of the Burgundians.
In 1726 the old church was demolished. In June 1728 started the construction of the new building designed by Antoine Dérizet. The church was consecrated in 1731 and dedicated to Saint Claudius of Besançon and Saint Andrew the Apostle. Since 1866, the fathers of Congregation of the Blessed Sacrament officiate in the Church, holding the perpetual adoration of the Eucharist.

  • Open 7:00 (8:00 Sundays) to 13:00, 16:00 to 20:00. Mass is celebrated: Weekdays 7:30, 8:30, 18:00; Sundays and Solemnities 10:30, 11:30, 18:00. A gorgeous little late Baroque domed church. The architect was Antoine Dérizet, who also designed the church of Nome di Maria in the Foro Traiano. It is run by the Sacramentines, who have the rare privilege of leaving the Blessed Sacrament exposed on the altar for veneration by anybody who visits. So please show respect, with no loud talking or camera flash.
  • A hidden gem. Small, simple but well worth the visit.
