Bernini's masterpieces, stunning architecture, free, must go!

Like visiting a museum while enjoying a religious experience. Has been described as a Grand Masterpiece, and we must agree!

This nice little church contains Bernini's Ecstasy of Saint Teresa, but, more than that, it is entirely beautiful with colors which are different from the usual.

We came here to see Bernini's St. Teresa of Ecstasy, which is amazing - he is able to convey a real sense of emotion and action in the marble, and the gold beams with the light pouring down are a nice touch. I only wish it we were able to get a little closer to it! The rest of the... More

We generally don't go into as many churches as some, but this one brought us up short. The interior is beautiful, amazing in its detail. Everywhere you look, there is something wonderful.
