About us

Your home in Rome

According to the pastoral principles of welcome and services for pilgrims (groups, parishes, dioceses, families, etc.),
the Spanish Episcopal Conference and the Pontifical Spanish College of St. Joseph in Rome
have given permission to use some areas of the College in order to turn them into the House “San Juan de Ávila”.
