Owner description: Closed on Thursdays! The famous painter Caravaggio (1573-1610) was commissioned to paint for this church, where in one of its chapels is his realistic naturalism in three scenes of the life of St. Matthew.

I enjoyed seeing this very ornate church near the Pantheon. There are three Rafael paintings, not to be missed, and a beautiful ceiling fresco.

A great place to admire the Caravaggio paintings, and the actual church and alter was just as impressive. Try going early mornings to avoid the tourists.

The church is great (as are so many in Rome) but it is not far from the must visit piazza Navona. The 3 paintings by Caravaggio are amongst the best in Rome. Take coins to turn the lights on. One of the highlights of my Rome trip.

Stunning church that is easy to get to and you will be rewarded with a Caravaggio. What more could you want?
