Also called Terconia or Vittoria because it was built to celebrate the success of Marcantonio Colonna in Lepanto the church was originally annexed to the San Carlo Hospital, which housed sick and pilgrims.

Inside, Terenzio da Fiuggi made a wall painting on the upper altar representing the battle of Lepanto and the Virgin asking for peace. On top it reads ” Non Vires arma, sed Maria Rosarii fecit nos victores” (Not armed men, but Maria of the Rosary made us winners).
