Trajan & Imperial Forums, Rome: 76 reviews and 143 photos
Among the best pictures one can take in Rome are the two churches with dome just behind the Trajan's column. My photos are on an afternoon in February with the sun already low.
On the left stands Santa Maria di Loreto from the 16th c. from architect Antonio da Sangallo the younger. The dome with lantern was by Jacopo del Duca.
The church on the right called Santissimo Nome di Maria (Holly Name of Maria), with a similar dome was built two centuries later by the French architect Antoine Derizet.
They are often called twin churches but are not unique in that function; there are also twin churches at the Piazza del Popolo but from the same architect Carlo Rainaldi in the same period.
Visit is normally from 9 - 13 and 16 - 18 h.
