Beautiful interior and artwork well worth a visit especially if you went to a Jesuit School. Tomb of Saint Ignatius is amazing. Society of Jesus is right next door. Women will not be admitted wearing shorts or if they have bare shoulders.

Not an outstanding building from the outside but the interior is amazing with its fabulous artwork. The depiction of a false dome is very clever - you need to move around the church to recognize this.

We stumbled upon this church by accident while walking around to visit other places. It is one of the most beautiful churches I've ever seen. We also visited the Sistine Chapel and I feel like this compares to the beauty there. If you are walking around and find yourself in the vicinity of this church, you should definitely go in... More

Beautiful paintings on the ceiling, and lovely place just to visit on your way to the more known attractions of Rome. Negative few spots that still needed finishing touches

Well, not definitatively better, my wife perfered the sistine chapen, however I though this was had the more impressive ceiling. However what is not in conjection is that they are more massively impressive and that this one is a must, espeically considering you can you want in (no queing like at the Vatican). Must see.

Stumbled across this church whilst looking for other sites. My actual words to my wife prior to entering it were "Is it worth looking in?". Upon entering, we both shared a chuckle as we looked up at the ceiling. The building, the decoration, the sheer awe inspiring scale inside is absolutely incredible. If you are anywhere near this church, make... More

We stumbled on this place while lost and were amazed how somewhere so breathtakingly beautiful could be tucked away in the small streets, we actually appreciated it more than St Peters (which IMO only just beats it) as it was so peaceful. If you're in Rome it's well worth looking for.

I loved visiting this church. My favorite church in Rome by far. The painting on the ceiling is amazing. As you walk in and look up the painting has movement. A real treat to see and not very crowded because it's not a "popular" church to visit which is why I wanted to see it. My 10 year old son... More

We had been told to visit this church due to the spectacular painting on the ceiling and I'm glad, as if we had not been told about it, we would have walked straight past! The building does not really seem much from the outside but when you step inside and look up... wow! Simply breathtaking! If you are in Rome,... More
