|English name:||St Lazarus|
|Address:|| Via Trionfale 148 |
San Lazzaro is a romanesque church dedicated to St Lazarus.
The church was built in the early 11th century, and was first known as Santa Maria Maddalena. A hospice for pilgrims was attached to it; Via Trionfale was one of the main roads into Rome for pilgrims from the north.
Later, an asylum for lepers was established here and the dedication was changed to St Lazarus, the patron saint of lepers.
The original Romanesque interior has been preserved. It has three naves separated by reused ancient columns.
A chapel is dedicated to the former titular saint, St Mary Magdalene. She is a patron of vine dressers, many of whom worked in the area around the church.
