“Read up before you go”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2012

My guidebook doesn't have much on this church but I wish I had done more research before we went. The frescoes are truly beautiful. The church's very large size gives the ceiling space to really envelop you. The infornpmation provided inside the church about the various chapels was minimal, I thought, but they were each interesting, specially the ones that seemed yet-to-be-finished. You could spend an hour in here easily. We plan to go back.

“Beautiful frescos”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2012

This is not to be missed! The frescos are glorious and the guide was very informative. Definitely put this one on your list. Do a bit of studying about Loyola before you go. It will enhance your visit.

“Magnificent!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 16, 2012

A high baroque Jesuit large church between the Pantheon and Il Gesu. Splendid paintings -- site of the famous illusionist frescoes -- particularly in the dome. Also, a concert venue.

“Beautiful church”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2012 via mobile

Definitely worth a visit. Its free, so pop in and check it out. Well recommended. We particularly liked the paintings and decorative art. There is a model replica with all the cathedrals from all over the world. Beautiful church!
