Built to commemorate the founder of the Jesuit order, the 17th-century Chiesa di Sant'Ignazio di Loyola features an interior with gilded ornaments, marble reliefs, and remarkable frescoes. Admire the church's Baroque facade before heading inside to study the fresco glorifying St. Ignatius. Covering the ceiling of the nave, it creates an optical illusion of a dome. You can wander the plaza where the church is located to see examples of Rococo architecture.

  • Simply breathtaking. The ceiling fresco is almost as impressive as the sistine chapel. A must see spot in Rome. It's not busy so you can really take your time to enjoy this amazing church.
  • At the entrance there is a big mirror. When you look on it you can see the painting's reflection. It is so beautiful as if the characters are falling down from the roof.
