St Andrew delle Fratte

St Andrew delle Fratte

St Andrew delle Fratte is a 17th century basilica church in Rome. The current church was built over a pre-existing one, erected in 1192, called infra hortes (“between orchards”, then  fratte, “woods”) because it was located in a countryside area. The third chapel on the left is called the Miracle Chapel and contains the venerated icon of Our Lady who in 1842 appeared to a young French Jew, Alphonse Ratisbonne. He immediately converted to Christianity from Judaism and later founded the Congregation of Our Lady of Sion.
