This church was not on the radar, but we found it on our way tho the Forum. We decided to stop in since we were in front of it and are so glad we did. What a beautiful church!

Unbelievable place, burial place of St Ignacius of Loyola (here, not at the church that bears his namesake, incidentally). Arm of St. Francis Xavier is on display as well. It's really beautiful and is located RIGHT near Largo Argentina, smack in the middle of the city.

The place seem to be darker than most of the churches I visited on this trip. However, after I got passed that, I was able to appreciate the beauty of the whole church. The statue of Jesus on the cross was very moving and the ceiling of the church was intriguing for me.

A quite dark church. A bit tricky to see all altars. A bit of light would be perfect. But impressing main altar.

If you're in Rome, you can't miss one of the best churches in the center of Christianity The paintings on the ceiling have been restored few years ago and the Jesuit fathers allow you to admire them by a very useful mirror which you can easily move by wheels, pointing it toward the painting you want to focus on (the...

While this church contains a vast array of fine art, in my opinion the ceiling fresco is the most memorable. The church fathers must agree, as a large mirror is placed in the middle of the nave to save your neck.

If you like baroque you can not miss to pay a visit to this monument. The church is enormous and the artwork is incredible.
