  • A church the size not exaggerated but not to be missed. Low indoor lighting but no doubt helps to make the atmosphere. I would advise her strongly.

  • Spectacular! To visit. There are many things to see. The altar, painted ceilings, there is also a reproduction of the cave with our Lady of Lourdes.

  • Little do I have been putting into this basilica, located almost opposite the College of Spain, whom I knew very superficially, though. Apart from the four niches with statues of Saints, the exterior doesn't draws attention. Today, having being religious celebration of all Saints ' day, I didn't have time to combine a thorough examination of the Interior of the building, visit worth making. The Church is in fact full of sublime works of art both pictorial sculptural. As I sat listening to the mass, in front of me I could admire the high altar, built on a design by Francesco Borromini. On the altar there is a marble stand, built to a design by Gian Lorenzo Bernini, who does frame the beheading of St Paul, a marble group of Algardi. Any painting bolognese Baroque age is represented here. Paintings by Guercino, Guido Reni and Ludovico Carracci, which you can see here the wonderful paradise.
