The Church of the Burgundians
The small church of Santi Claudio e Andrea dei Borgognoni was built by the French architect Antoine Dérizet (1685-1768) between 1728 and 1730, and served Rome's community of Burgundians (Borgognoni).
The façade is decorated with statues of Saint Andrew (Luc Breton, 1771) and Saint Claudius of Besançon (Guillaume Antoine Grandjacquet, 1771).
Known simply as San Claudio, it is the only church in Rome dedicated to this 7th century French saint.
