  • Barnabite church built between 1606 and 1611, with a monumental façade built between 1634 and 1636 by Hercules Figs, which immediately strikes inside the loud, lavish and rich paintings of late seventeenth century Antonio and Zia Rahman, which can look heavy and at times overwhelming. Undoubtedly, we cannot stop at once to understand that the masterpieces there are also here and names are Guercino, Giuseppe Maria Crespi, Ludovico Carracci, the latter scoring the famous paradise. Exceptional is the altar where you placed the sculptural group of the beheading of St Paul, by the sublime bolognese sculptor Alessandro Algardi. So worth a visit, Baroque!

  • The Basilica of Saint Paul loved me because to be a Basilica is very cozy and collection. Rich and beautiful on the inside.

  • Affects the brightness of the Interior, the splendour of decoration and especially the poignant sculpture of decollazioine di San Paolo, a masterpiece by a. Algardi.
