History and Description

The San Pietro alla Carità Church was founded towards the end of the 15th century. This was probably commissioned by Pope Simmaco.

The church consists of three naves separated by marble columns of a type of stone called cipollino. These columns were probably taken from the Villa Adriana.

Both the facade and the bell tower are characterized by a Romanesque architectural style.

Inside the church, remnants of the cosmatesque floor and of some wall paintings can still be seen.
