Info

Santa Teresa d'Avila is a church on the Corso d'Italia in Rome, Italy. It is dedicated to Teresa of Avila.
It was founded by Cardinal Girolamo Gotti in 1901, designed in a Romanesque-Gothic hybrid style by Tullio Passarelli. In 1906 Pope Pius X made it a parish church and granted it to the Discalced Carmelites, who still have a generalate by the church and serve the church and its convent and parochial centre. Pope Pius XII elevated it to the status of basilica in 1951, and eleven years later Pope John XXIII made it a titular church, with Cardinal Giovanni Panico as its first titular cardinal.
Teresa of Avila is depicted on the church's facade, being blessed by Christ, and on the high-altarpiece. The interior is decorated with works by 20th-century Roman artists.
