Church of SS. Quaranta Martiri or S. Pasquale Baylon

The Church of SS. Quaranta Martiri now is bearing the name of S.Pasquale Baylon, protector of spinsters, but before it was dedicated to SS.Quaranta Martiri di Sebaste. Already existing in 1123, it was rebuilt in 1486 and restored in 1608, by the Arciconfraternita del Gonfalone. The facade of pleasant for eye post-Borrominian architecture was created by G.Sardi; the interior is quite harmonious. Should be noticed the semi-sphere dome, decoration of the ceiling and inner facade. The church was reconstructed in 1735 by an order of Spanish priests, who dedicated it to the saint born in Aragon. They bought the previous church which exited since the beginning of the 12th century and had a little hospital annexed.

In 1738 Filippo V put it under the power of the Spanish Crown and ever since it has been inhabited by Spanish franciscans. The new church was dedicated also to St. Paschal Baylon, a Spanish monk belonging to a branch of the Franciscan order; it was under the patronage of King Philip V of Spain, whose coat of arms was painted above the entrance.
