Most visitors to this church will be coming here for the very famous ceiling art. This consists of two main pieces. The church couldn't afford a dome, so the artist at the time painted an optical illusion of one. I didn't know this walking it...More

This has no difference with most of the churches that can be seen in the center of Rome in the outside, however, when you enter to this place, it is impossible to avoid looking the magnificent art pieces in the ceiling and the optical illusions...More

We attended evening services here. We loved the location not far from the Pantheon. The live music played during Mass was unforgettable! The acoustics were fabulous! Great memory!

What a wonderful interior to this church which is in Piazza Sant Ignazio and close to the Pantheon. The frescoes and ceilings really are just incredible and an amazing example of 16th century 3D art. Probably our favourite church out of the ones we visited...More

This was a stop on our free walking tour. Our guide gave us a few minutes to explore, and then share what we thought, especially of the dark dome. The church is beautifully and colorfully painted and decorated-- except when they ran out of funds...More

This was a highlight of the trip for me. I love the ceiling and dome. Almost hate to post pictures because you might think it is no big deal. Trust me that photos cannot capture the feeling you experience as your brain tries to reconcile...More

Do not miss this ......a beautiful ceiling and a deceptive dome which is not a dome at all. Next door also a beautifully painted corridor in what was the home of the Saint. Well worth a visit.

I spent part of a day visiting churches when I was in Rome. Not just St. Peter's and the Vatican, but others. having been educated by the Jesuits in high school and university, I decided to include both St. Ignatius and the Gesu. I found...More

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

I don't think it has a very large sign and it doesn't look entirely 'churchy' at ground level so you could walk straight past it. Look out for 3 sets of grey doors (the central main doors are 4m or 5m high) flanked by stone... More
