Santa Caterina della Rota

Piazza di S. Caterina della Rota - 00186 Rome β€·
Regola [R.VII]
Centro Storico [1A]

Built at the end of the 16th century by Ottaviano Mascherino where the ancient Church of Santa Maria in Caterina was.

The name probably derives from "de catenariis or in catenari" due to the custom that the freed slaves, treated in the nearby hospital, had to hang their chains on the altar of the Virgin.

Since 1630 it belongs to the Canons of the Vatican Chapter.

In 1730, during a restoration, the beautiful façade was carried out with hints of the Rococo style.

In the church is buried Giuseppe Vasi, a famous engraver who was responsible for the beautiful engravings of Rome, who died in 1782.
Interesting is the work of Girolamo Muziano, the nocturne of Fuga in Egypt of the '500.
