Located in the Piazza Navona, with free access you should stop by and take in the beauty of this church. Internally the sculptures within each section towards different people across its often savage history are beautiful. The heroes are the ceiling and walls - paint and gold gilding is mind boggling.

Despite the unfortunate story of Agnese in her early teens about 1700 years ago, this is an inspirational spot to sit and take a sight seeing break. Seemed like every square inch of the inside was covered in beautiful art.

This church is right along the west side of Piazza Navona and not very large, but very beautiful inside. And unlike many Cathedrals we visited on our Italy trip, no cost to go in.

An exuberant rhythmic concave exterior facing the Piazza Navona, built in the 17th century started by one set of architects
and then continued by Borromini and Bernini. The facade nicely embraces the Four Rivers fountain by Bernini in front of the building; which is interesting given the men's rivalry throughout their lives

The polychromed interior is a wonderful contrast to the white travertine limestone. A Greek cross plan is laid out under an impressive dome depicting St Agnes's ascent into heaven. Yet another church in Rome worth your time and attention.

If you are visiting the piazza navona, I would recommend that you visit this small church. It was free to get in and a place of respite in the same area as the craziness of the piazza. We walked around for about 20 minutes enjoying the history of the church. Most of the descriptions had an English translation making it much more relevant. Would definitely visit again. Enjoy
