“Ornate and peaceful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2012

We came here to see Bernini's "L'Estasi di Santa Teresa" and we weren't disappointed. The only downside was that we had to go twice because it was closed the first time we went (1230-1500). There was no line, no noise, no tour guides or groups, so we were able to sit and look around at the awe-inspiring works around us and take pics (no flash) at our leisure. It's a smaller church, but there's not a blank spot anywhere. Gorgeous.

“Unbelievable!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2012

After several years I visited this church again to see Bernini's wonderful 'Ecstasy of St. Teresa'. I couldn't believe the amount of dust and grime that had been allowed to collect on this amazing sculpture. Surely it would not be too difficult to dust it regularly, especially as it is such a tourist attraction as well as being an incredible work of art.

“Small but beautiful”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2012

This was where one of the scenes in the Dan Brown novel - Angels & Demons was filmed. Seeing the interior in person was better than seeing it in the movie. Every inch of the walls is covered with awesome details and our eyes were in for a treat. The ceiling is really amazing and adorned with angels statues and beautiful paintings. This is a must visit place!
