Santa Maria di Loreto

If you walk up the hill from the Colosseum you have the Roman Forum and the Forum of Caesar on your left and towards the top of the hill the Forum of Augustus and the Trajan Market on your right.  Just at the end of the Trajan Market set two churches; the Santa Maria di Loreto and the The Church of the Most Holy Name of Mary.

In a couple of the images you can also see Trajan’s Column to the side of the church.  The Trajan’s Column commemorates Roman emperor Trajan’s victory in the Dacian Wars.
