Dedicated to a Christian martyr, St. Agnese, killed during Diocletian's Christian persecution times, this church was enlarged, beautified and decorated by Bernini, thanks to the wealth of the Pamphilj family, the same family that produced Giovanni Batista Pamphilj, aka Pope Innocent X, buried in this church. Velasquez has a fabulous portrait of that Pope, you can see it in the Palazzo Pamphilj-Doria. In the same place you can here the story of the family, the pope and the papessa (I'm not giving this one away) told with British accent by the last heir of the family.
The church features splendid Baroque architecture, the sacristy by Boromini, four chapels and an antique organ, you should be so lucky to hear it...

This church is located on the Piazza Novona opposite the Four Rivers fountain. One of the best in Rome. Not a lot of people go inside, so it’s nice to take in all the beautiful art. It has a very holy atmosphere as well. The dome is one of the best we have seen in Rome. It will leave you speechless

Beautiful church, both from the outside and from the inside. In theory you can't take pictures inside, but when we visited the security staff didn't bother controlling that,. maybe because it was raining.
Speaking of which, don't expect them to let you stay at the entrance or the small roof on the steps, as they will politely tell you you can't.

This is a beautiful church which serves as a wonderful counterpoint to Piazza Navona. The Piazza is active, lively, crowded and entertaining. The church, just in front of the main fountain, is quiet, serene and a respite from the bustle just a few steps away. Just beautiful!

If you didn't know it was there you would walk right past it. There is no indication of it being a church. The interior is beautiful, and compares with anything else in town. Being in the center of Piazza Navano, only makes it more appealing.
