  • I love this church....I love the little chapel in the back of the church...good microphones...so I can hear the mass...excellent priests...they seem very prepared
  • This church was built at the behest of Pope Leo XIII , who intended in this way to celebrate his priestly jubilee: the first stone was laid in 1881 , but the works were undertaken between 1891 and 1898 , the year in which the church was opened to public (even if the works were completed only in 1911 ). It was dedicated to St. Joachim, the father of the Virgin Mary, in memory of the pope's first name.In addition to its architectural aspects, the church also has value in the urbanistic field because, with others from the district and the adjacent Trionfale district (partly contemporary), it tells of an anticlerical tendency widespread in the late 19th century in the newborn Italian state it wanted, placing itself at odds with the Vatican, minimizing the importance of places of worship, assigning them any building lot in the construction of neighborhoods in alignment on secondary roads and not, as one would expect, a lot overlooking the main square of the neighborhood (also in this case, where the Piazza dei Quiriti is really close and has simple residential buildings in view).
