San Romualdo Abate a Monte Migliore is a modern parish church at Via Nazzareno Strampelli 113, which is a rural location at the settlement of Monte Migliore on the Via Laurentina on the southern edge of the municipal area. The territory of the parish is extensive, and extends beyond the boundaries of the municipality.

The church itself is not in the village, but to the south on a country lane surrounded by fields. It is the southernmost of Rome's churches, and about as rural as you can get.

The dedication is to St Romuald.

It is a small rectangular building built in 1974 in the neo-Romanesque style. The entrance façade has a doorway with a floating canopy having a pitched tiled roof and with a round window above containing the dove of the Holy Spirit in stained glass. There is a plinth of grey stone blocks, and the corners have long-and-short work in the same stone. Either side of the entrance the stone is laid regularly to give the impression of two square pilasters. The wall either side of the entrance is rendered in creamy white and bears a pair of terracotta relief plaques bearing the sacred initials of Jesus and Mary. However, above the entrance and in the gable it is rendered in grey.

Bus number 703 passes it, starting from Agricoltura in EUR.
