  • This is a very important 16th century confraternity church, because it was designed and engineered by Raphael. Unfortunately he should have stuck to painting, because the mechanics of construction were beyond him and the church has had to be restored repeatedly since it was new. It's owned by the Guild of Goldsmiths. Finding it open is an event. However, you can visit by appointment. Ignore the times on the brass plaque on the door (such brass plaques on Roman church doors, ostensibly giving opening times, are usually mendacious). The Confraternity website advises that you should phone 10:00-13:00, Monday to Friday, in order to arrange a visit between the same times. The number to call is 06.6868260. Alternatively, you could sign up for one of those expensive guided tours from a firm that specialises in places like this.
