The Basilica dei Santissimi Ambrogio e Carlo al Corso (also known as San Carlo al Corso) is a Baroque church in Rome on the Via del Corso. The church is dedicated to Saint Ambrose and Saint Charles Borromeo. The central vault is frescoed with a Fall of the Rebel Angels by Giacinto Brandi and there is a lovely altarpiece depicting Saints Ambrose and Charles Borromeo with the Virgin and Jesus. Behind the altar is a niche with a reliquary containing the heart of St Charles. Interestingly, one side chapel is dedicated to St. Olav of Norway. This is a very lovely Baroque church that is well worth a visit if you are strolling down Via del Corso. Note that as of February 2013 this church was undergoing some restoration to the front so there was some scaffolding present.
