Cappella del Collegio Messicano is the mid 20th century private chapel of the Mexican College, located at Via del Casaletto 314 in the Gianicolense suburban area.

History Edit

The Pontifical Mexican College is a recent foundation. The proposal was first mooted by the Episcopal Conference of Mexico in 1960, as a seminary to which all Mexican dioceses could send priestly candidates for training. Work actually began in 1964, and was completed in 1967.

The architect was Silvio Galizia.

Appearance Edit

The complex is hidden from view behind trees, on the west side of the street.

The college website has photos of the buildings, but not of the chapel.
