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
