At the beginning of Viale di Trastevere is the church of San Crisogono. The church was built before 499 and restored in 1129.
Afterwards it was restored in 1626 by Gian Battista Sorìa for Cardinal Scipione Caffarelli Borghese and again in 1866. The simple façade with a tympanum has a wide Dorian portico with four granite columns among two side pilaster structures, on top of them is a parade of vases, as well as eagles and bourgeoise dragons.
