San Luigi Dei Francesi - Review

In a city famous for churches and religious allusions, it is quite difficult to pick out the one’s which are worth visiting. But in all fairness, this 16th century Roman Catholic Church stands out mainly because of the masterful pieces of period art that are on display in the interiors.

Completed in sometime between 1518 and 1589, the church stands till this day as a brilliant testimony to the marvels a few men can achieve. The artistry that can be seen in the walls and ceilings of this church truly puts one through a humbling experience. The ceiling in particular can be compared to some extent in artistry to the works of Michelangelo in the Sistine Chapel.

This church is open for visitation by tourists and should be on the must see lists for all first timers in Rome. Visit Italy Itinerary 10 Days for an unforgettable Italy travel experience

San Luigi Dei Francesi, Rome Reviews

  • One of my favourite churches in Rome. It is definitely worth the trip for the three fantastic Caravaggio paintings. Head straight in, you'll find them to the left of the alter depicting St. Matthew. It's also a great opportunity to get out of the hustle and bustle of the centre. Pop in for ten minutes for a moment of calm - it's definitely worth it.

  • The church might be beautiful, but there are lots of beautiful churches in Rome; it is for the Caravaggios you should put this place on your absolute must-see list. And they are truly remarkable.

  • This is my second favourite church in Rome (first is Saint'Ignazio di Loyola), that I keep revisiting over and over again, and not because of the Caravaggio painting but for its grand, majestic beauty.

  • A smaller church than the other ones I visited. Trying to figure out what makes it special. Probably the little angles. Is Cupid here?

  • The best place to see Carravaggio, in situ. Bring 2 euros to light the paintings. The most beautiful paintings in the most obscure setting imaginable :)
