“Why does no one talk about this church?”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 4, 2012 via mobile

I have walked from Piazza Navorone to Spanish Steps countless times and never noticed this church and yet today I happened to see the door open as I doing my tourist thing and decided to see what was there. I was in for a treat! Unlike the other churches this one was quiet and peaceful and not crowded....almost holy!! The art and statues were awe-inspiring and graceful. The altar beautiful and there was chant filling the church. I am not sure if it was actual monks or just a tape...didn't matter...it added a surreal feel to the place!

“Absolutely Stunning”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 3, 2012

We went into this church out of pure luck. It's fair I was absolutely blown away. We spent a lot of our time hunting out more churches, but none really compared to the initial shock of this amazing place.

The artwork is amazing, it is so peaceful and unlike anything that we have in Britain. Even if you are not religious, go to be amazed. I had tears in my eyes.

“Superb 3-D paintings on the ceiling”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 2, 2012

This church was well worth the stop because of the 3-D illusion of the paintings on the ceiling, and several marble sculptures.

We were there on All Saints Day and there was an orchestra and choir performing. All were welcomed into this absolutely wonderful church.
