Chiesa del Santissimo Nome di Maria al Foro Traiano, Rome

#150 of 525 in Historic Sites in Rome
The Church of the Most Holy Name of Mary at the Trajan Forum is a Roman Catholic church in Rome, Italy. This church should not be confused with the church Santissimo Nome di Maria in Via Latina in south-east Rome. The pale marble church stands in front of the Column of Trajan, a few dozen steps from the similarly domed, but externally more colorful, church of Santa Maria di Loreto.The feast of the Holy Name of Mary was instituted by Pope Innocent XI after the victory of the Austrian-Polish armies under the command of John III Sobieski over the Turks at the Battle of Vienna in 1683. Abbot Giuseppe Bianchi instituted devotion to the most holy name of Mary in 1685 at Santo Stefano del Cacco, and soon afterwards established the Congregation of the Most Holy Name of Mary, which was formally approved in 1688.

  • Small Catholic church right in front of Trajian column. The architecture is very similar to the other church, just 50 meters from it, santa Maria dj Loreno. Botb domes are similar and beautiful. Worth visiting them and if you are lucky they might be open .
  • Right behind Trajan's column, it has a nice cupola
