“Beautiful Church”
Reviewed May 20, 2013

Sant'Agnese in Agone is a 17th-century Baroque church. It was the site where the Early Christian Saint Agnes was martyred in the ancient Stadium of Domitian. The church is full of art. The view of the murals in the dome is wonderful.

“Blink and you might miss it”
Reviewed May 7, 2013

A gem of a church located opposite the central fountain in the Piazza Navona. As you peruse the artwork and stage shows in the piazza it would be easy to overlook the open door of Sant'Agnese, and if you did it would be a huge oversight.

This 17th century Baroque Church was one of our stand out finds in Rome for a 'non mainstream' attraction, we didn't read about it in any of the guide books, and there seemed to be a relatively low footfall of visitors from the piazza.

The decor and sumptuous finish of this modestly sized church is unbelievable, it's almost like a miniature St Peters Basilica (OK maybe I'm stretching it a little but it was a genuinely amazing place).

If your planning to visit Piazza Navona do not overlook this place, it's the best part of the Piazza.

“An unexpected treat”
Reviewed May 3, 2013

We went to Piazza Navona for the Bernini fountain and the piazza is a nice one but hadn’t planned to visit the church as it hadn’t figured highly on TripAdvisor or my guidebook (and if you are going to go into every church you come across in Rome you’ll get nothing else done). However we did not expecting much and was pleasantly surprised. It is only small but has an impressive interior. Worth a 5 minute visit at least if you are in the piazza.

“Beautiful church”
Reviewed May 3, 2013

A gorgeous church with a rich history, read up about St Agnes before you go and really appreciate the history here. It's located on Piazza Navone, which is great for people watching (restaurants there are a rip off though)

“Worth a Look”
Reviewed March 13, 2013

A must see while in the Piazza Navone area. Over the top baroque interior; interesting false perspective in the side chapels. The story of Agnes of Rome is a harrowing one, and the sacristy has a reliquary containing her skull.
