Great church to see

Very close to pantheon. Great fresco on ceiling. I would go again just to see the fresco on the ceiling. Worth the short walk.

Came across this piece of heaven purely by chance after visiting the Pantheon. What luck! A really beautiful church. Fantastic ceiling and many other wonderful pieces of art.

the church of Sant'Ignazio is not just a treasure-trove given to the world by the Jesuits, it is the closest to heaven for a believer. When Andrea Pozzo finished the incredible asymmetrical fresco on the ceiling (it must be viewed right in the centre to appreciate its proportions) it was supposed to bring the pilgrims who arrived in Rome after...

I arrived here after a tip from a local. The church is just breathtakingly beautiful, with a brilliant ceiling and lots of art everywhere. I was really lost for words right after I entered.

We visited here in October 2013. This church is a typical example of Baroque opulence, built by Pope Gregory XV in 1626. It forms the centre of the Jesuit area of Rome together with the Gesu church. The interior is lined with precious stones, marble, stucco and gilt. There was a cupola planned but was never built so the space... More

The ceiling frescos, are nothing short of spectacular. The illusionist perspective [trompe l'œil] is breath taking and the vibrant baroque style is in my opinion only second to the Sistine. Each of the with numerous side chapels is full of decoration and wonder. A must!

Beautiful church, the painting on the ceiling is wonderful, seems like the angels and figures are flying out the ceiling.

This church is near the Pantheon. They couldn't afford a dome so they painted one in 3D style. The ceiling paintings are amazing and a beautiful church

An unexpected extra as we made our way to teh Pantheon and came to this Breataking Jesuit chapel . It is obviously a major tourist site in its own right it just so happened we hadn't planned the vist in advance but are so glad we found it .

Staying in Colonna

Neighborhood Profile
Colonna
Frantic fashionistas, pedicured politicos, goal-oriented tourists, and on-the-go locals cross paths every day in Colonna, a delightful chaos in the very center of the city. Even though it has some of the city’s loveliest sites—a 2nd century column, Belle Epoque shopping center, and a magnificent Baroque parliament building—Colonna is not just another pretty face, but the cosmopolitan eye of Rome’s cultural storm. Colonna can safely say it has the best of Rome: museums, boutiques, window displays, restaurants, cafes, and people watching.
