This church stands on the site of the Temple of Juno on the northern summit of the Capitoline Hill and dates back to at least the 6th century. The church is famous today for it's ornate gilded ceiling and a very fine series of frescoes by Pinturicchio, dating from the 1480's. The staircase that leads up to the church was completed in 1348 to commemorate the end of the plague.
