Chiesa di Sant’Antonio in Campo Marzio

Chiesa-di-Sant'Antonio-in-Campo-Marzio

This baroque church (also called Sant’Antonio ai Portoghesi), serving the Portuguese community since 1445, may be small but it’s the epitome of opulence.

The church is completely surrounded by other buildings, with only the façade being visible from the street. Lavish marble, gilt and stucco make the interior a glittering tribute to the divine. It houses a stunning organ built in 1748. After looting in WWII, the organ has undergone many alterations reusing and preserving the materials from the original organ. Last restored in 2008, the symphonic-electric organ is frequently used for concerts led by main organist Giampaolo Di Rosa.

Mass in Portuguese is celebrated on Sundays at 5pm.
