Gorgeous church - amazing trio of Caravagio paintings - we'll worth a visit - good spots for coffee and food close by too
The church has 3 wonderful Caravaggio's inside showing scenes from the life of Saint Matthew. Sadly, it is always packed so try to go early if you want to enjoy the paintings.
This church is a small wonder. Caravaggio' three painting cycle of Saint Mathew make it a must see.
STUNNING! A must see! Even as an atheist the Sunday service singing was beautiful to experience!
Beautiful little church. Free entry, but the frescoes on the sides only light up when you pay a euro.
