As with many Roman churches it seems, the outside of this church is very unassuming, so much so that you might pass right by it without stopping to look at what's inside. The inside is quite beautiful, however, with wonderful murals painted behind the baptistry and on the ceilings. You probably have never heard of the Jesuit artist who is... More

As you enter the large church you'll see what appears to be a cupola in the dome. Keep on looking. It's not, just what a clever artist or architect created hundreds of years ago to give the appearance.

Some of the most beautiful frescoes you will see anywhere. For an amateur art lover they are comparable with artwork in sistine chapel.

This was our last stop that day and the evening mass was on so we stayed. The church is just amazing. There are several Jesuit saints buried there (among them St. Gonzaga). The organ music at the end of the mass was mind blowing --it was an uplifting experience. This is one of 5 churches one must see in Rome... More

We'd read about the 17th century Baroque church before we left home and decided it was worth taking the time to find for curiosity's sake. It exceded all expecations. Wow. What a spectacular sight! If you stand in the centre of the nave and look straight up, it looks like the figures are floating in mid-air. Stand on the marble... More

The church of Sant'Ignazio di Loyola is one of Romes most beautifull. I might even argue that it has the most beautifull roof painting of all churches I've seen i Rome. It is easy to find the church and inside a calm and cool atmosphere will greet you. Take a deep breath, slide down and sit like a tean ager... More

Though in Rome terms just a tad above average. Lovely large painting on the ceiling. Right in the center of the city. Worth a visit while nearby.
