“Another beautiful ceiling.”
Reviewed March 14, 2013

Almost as nice as St. Ignatius Loyola, the ceiling is painted beautifully, I can't imagine how the original designers even though of this!

“Catch the 5:30 PM "multi-media" show.”
Reviewed March 9, 2013

This is a very richly decorated church, but when we went in it was under-lit. But at 5:30 PM there is a small service with music where they light up the apse with St. Ignatius with what can only be described as a baroque multi-media show with music, lights, and moving displays. Truly shows off the masterpieces of the church in a tasteful and stunning way.

“Brilliant fooling of the eye”
Reviewed March 2, 2013

Well, you see the church from the outside and you step inside and you think it had high arched ceilings and a dome. Well, it's just painted. Today artists would need all kind of available technics to get it right, but then at that time the just got it done and it looks so real.
