A beautiful baroque style church with commendable architecture and intricate and artistic interiors with baroque motifs. The front facade has a unique concave design which is quite different from the other churches in Rome. The ceiling is gorgeously covered with frescoes that weren’t designed by recognized artists. The artwork of the church is indeed impressive. The church is dedicated to Our Lady of the Sick. The patron of the sick, St. Camille was buried here. The church is highly recommended on a visit to Rome. The holy shrine is very calm and peaceful.
- Maintain peace and silence in the church.
- It is wise to dress modestly.

Not much on the outside, but wow - blown away on entering. Completely free and just a few steps from the Pantheon- take a minute and gaze on the wonder that is the inside of this church.
Beautiful and a quiet place to do prayers. Go early in the morn to avoid the crowd
Even more fulfilling than saint Peter's in Vatican. It's a masterpiece by Michelangelo.
A very beautiful Church attached to the Mother House of Camillians, Order of the Ministers of the Infirm. You will find the cubicle where St. Camillus de Lellis, the great lover of the Sick lived and took his last breath in 1614. His holy relics are preserved in the Museum and the Chapel.
The Santa Maria Maddalena is a Roman Catholic church in Rome, named after Saint Mary Magdalene. It is located on the Via della Maddalena, one of the streets leading from the Piazza della Rotonda in the Campo Marzio area of historic Rome. The Clerks Regular, Ministers to the Sick (Italian: Ministri degli Infirmi), order established by Saint Camillus de Lellis, had a church at that location in Rome since 1586 and in the 17th century started the construction of the current church, which was completed in 1699 in the Baroque style. In seventy years of work several architects were involved including Carlo Quadri, Carlo Fontana (who is thought to have designed the dome) and Giovanni Antonio de Rossi. It is uncertain who designed the curved main facade, which was finished circa 1735 and is Rococo, an unusual style in Roman church facades. It also displays motifs reminiscent of Borromini. Early guide books credit Giuseppe Sardi with the its design. Between 1732 and 1734, however, as architect of the order, the Portuguese architect Manuel Rodrigues dos Santos directed the completion of works at the church. The historian Alessandra Marino believes that it is to Dos Santos, rather than Giuseppe Sardi, that the design for the highly unusual façade decoration should be attributed. The architectural historian Nina Mallory has also maintained that Sardi is unlikely to be the designer of the façade. To the left of the church is the monastery, constructed circa 1678, by Paolo Amato from Palermo and completed by C.F. Bizzacheri in the early 1680s.
