Description

The Church of St Jerome "degli Schiavoni" is also known as "St Jerome Croats" because it is the national church of the Croats. Since the XIV century, a community of refugees settled in this area, after having escaped from the Turks from Illiria and Schiavonia. Pope Nicholas V granted them the establishment of a Congregation (St Jerome). The Church of St Jerome was entirely rebuilt in 1588 by Pope Sixtus V, who was a descendant of a Croatian family.
