San Massimo Vescovo a Palmarola is a later 20th century parish church at Via Giuseppe Boffito 9, in the suburb of Palmarola which is the south part of the Ottavia suburban zone. The address is in a cul-de-sac off the Via di Casal del Marmo.

The patron saint, Maximus of Turin, was a 5th century patristic author and bishop of Turin.

History Edit

The parish was established in 1983, as one of three in the locality which have "churches" in apartment blocks. (Also see Santa Brigida di Svezia and Sant’Ilario di Poitiers.)

It has a very poor online presence, and no information on liturgical activities is available.

If a permanent church is built for the locality, this parish is liable to be suppressed in favour of Santa Brigida.

Appearance Edit

The church is in the ground floor of a six-storey red brick apartment block. Look for a cross made of two sticks inserted into a tree stump by the gate.

There is no dedicated car park.
