Great ceiling

Beautiful church, with a great ceiling painting. The scenes depicts Saint Ignazio. It is very close to Pantheon and it is worth a visit

Overall, the church is absolutely beautiful. With sculptures on the walls, marble discs embedded into the floor and a beautifully painted ceiling. When you look up, you imagine that you are looking into a dome, but I won't reveal the secret...you will have to visit yourself to learn about the famous dome in this church. This church is not as...

Building of Chiesa di Sant’Ignazio di Loyola started in 1626, with the church opening to the public in 1650. Work on the building was completed in 1685, however, funds had run out and the intended dome, couldn’t be built. Andrea Pozzo painted the trompe l'oeil dome in 1685, then it was destroyed by fire in 1823. Fortunately Francesco Manno was... More

One of the most beautiful churches in Rome. Don't miss Andrea Pozzo's Baroque masterpiece, the painted ceiling with the illusory perspectives of the dome.

The church dedicated to St Iganatius of Loyola is a huge church with a typical boroque art. The paintings from the 18th century gives a vivid picture of life of St Ignatius. There are few altars, particularly that of St John Berchmans and that of St Aloysius Gonzaga that gives modest presentation of Baroque art.

This church is large, it is built by the Jesuit college, ( in case readers do not know, Papa Francesco, is the first Jesuit Pope) it is a Baroque style, so built in the 16-17 century. The amazing ceiling in tromp l'oeil, by Pozzo, a Jesuit lay brother. There is a mirror places facing the ceiling, so people can look... More

Found this by accident between Pantheon and Trevi Fountain. A beautiful church as impressive as any on the tourist map.

A wonderful church that everyone must see. Is not too difficult to find. You have to see the ceiling paintings and the magnificent sculptures, especially at the far right corner. Search for the mirror's view of the ceiling.

If you are tired of shopping in Via del Corso, then just turn into Via del Caravita and you will find this interesting church. There are a lot, and I mean a lot, of churches in Rome but I found this one interesting because of an optical illusion, the Dome illusion. It was supposed to be a glorious dome, but... More

Staying in Navona / Pantheon / Campo de’ Fiori

Neighborhood Profile
Navona / Pantheon / Campo de’ Fiori
With three of Rome’s most beloved piazzas within a five-minute walk of each other, the Navona/Pantheon/Campo area may be the prettiest and most picturesque area of the city. Join the beautiful throngs hanging out in cafes, boutiques, art galleries, and wine bars, or peek at a neighborhood museum or monument. If you want nonstop movida, the streets here are busy with chic bicyclists and Vespa drivers, street vendors, merchants, and locals. There is no rhyme or reason to its winding streets and there's something to see around every corner, so take pleasure in a spontaneous wander.
