San Raimondo Nonnato is a modern parish church at Via del Casale Ferranti 64 in the suburb of Osteria del Curato on the Via Tuscolana, near the Anagnina metro station.

The dedication is to St Raymond Nonnatus.

It was completed in 1964 as a smallish edifice in a rather naïve neo-Romanesque style. The plan is a Latin cross with very short arms, as there are two shallow transepts. The right-hand one has a bellcote with two bells.

There is an enclosed porch with an arched entrance and a sloping roof, and above this is a mullioned window consisting of three tall arches. At the tip of the gabled roofline is a small protrusion vaguely resembling a pediment, and this bears a cross. Both the porch and the portion of the façade above it is rendered in grey stone slabs of different sizes, while the rest of the façade (including a strip under the roofline) is rendered in light brown, as is the rest of the church. The aisleless interior is all in white, with engaged square pilasters holding up the ceiling. The small semi-circular apse is completely occupied with a high-quality figurative mosaic in the Byzantine style showing Christ the King being venerated by saints.
