Within a few minutes of the Moses Fountain on Via XX Settembre, which is itself worth a look, you'll find a must-see church, Santa Maria Della Vittoria, with the Cornaro Chapel, which holds Bernini's sculptural masterpiece, the Ecstasy of Saint Teresa. Really an emotive, bold artistic installation, so characteristic of the Baroque period. Also nearby is Santa Susanna, another church... More

The Fountain of Moses was designed by Domenico Fontana in 1587. The sculpture was the work of Leonardo Sormani and Prospero Antichi. Beside the statue of Moses there are two panels with sculptures also. Several lion sculptures have water spouts from their mouths that throw water in a fountain.

The Churches of Santa Susanna and San Bernardo al Terme are right there as well, as well as the lovely 16th... More

Not a traditional attraction but it is the street where you find the outstanding, Santa maria della Vittoria, which is the finest Baroque church in Rome and one of the most beautiful of this era in Europe in our opinion. You can also see an interesting fountain and statues across the street at Piazza Bernardo. There are a few more... More
