  • This church was build to the memory of 27 Franciscans monks who were martyred in 1597. But what makes it so special is the atmosphere created through the frescoes created by the Japanese painter...  more »
  • Another "stumble across" site worth seeing. A Franciscan parish originally built for missionaries leaving on journeys it was rebuilt and later decorated after World War II to the 26 Japanese martyrs.....  more »
  • A church dedicated to the SS Japanese Martyrs. Paintings by Japanese artist L. Hasegawa, rare kind of such churches in Italy.
  • Long Avenue of victory in Civitavecchia in front of the Piazzetta San Francesco da Paola turns out to be a peculiarity not to be missed by tourists looking for rarities. The interior is, pictetically speaking, a rarity. Sacred images with Asian physiognomy. To visit. Caritas Center attached to the church as well as a small working theatre for cultural events and not.
