We took a cab but arrived during service and were not allowed in. Please check regarding opening hours. Bernini's Ecstasy of Saint Theresa is absolutely breathtaking. We are continuing with our debate as to why Bernini's Theresa is curling her toes.

Santa Maria della Vittoria rolls beautifully off the tongue and is a very attractive small church not very far from Termini station. The church is really lovely but the main attraction is the superb statue by Bernini of the 'Ecstasy of St Teresa'.

The church was closed for lunch when I first visited. I managed to come again for this small chruch and was quite impressed. It is a small and intimate looking church with some masterpieces. Beautiful church for a short visit.

First thing to be aware of is that the church has limited hours for public viewing. It opened at 15:30 the day we went. What an amazing little church. Needless to say, Bernini's 'The Ecstasy of Saint Theresa' is the draw. But the sculpture on the opposite wall is impressive too. Additionally the artwork throughout the chapel is stunning. Walking...

Watching the Ecstasy of Santa Teresa de Jesús is worth the visit. The Bernini sculpture transport you to another world.

Someone earlier likened this to a Faberge Egg. Amazing detail and well worth a visit just to be amazed. Not sure if the person looking like a nun opening the door for you is linked to the church but gave her a few cents anyway..

A humble-looking church from the outside but amazing on the inside. A fairly short walk from Termini Station. Well worth visiting for the Bernini sculpture of St Teresa's ecstasy, and not as crowded as other churches. They provide laminated descriptions of the sculpture in different languages.
