  • Really great works of Caravaggio, Madonna of Loreto. Also by Raphael, the Prophet Isaiah. Nice colours, but unfortunately compared to the works of Raphael of the other was not. Until may sometimes be fewer people than the Church may also be works of Caravaggio, Sun Lisi di Francesi, 見remashita Caravaggio works slowly.

  • In the heart of Rome, in the city centre, the Basilica Saint-Augustin is also beautiful inside and outside... See also a magnificent painting by Caravaggio, in line with those presented in the Church St.-Louis-des-French...

  • That birbaccionne of Pietro Aretino swore he saw Flannery's grave in St Augustine. Moreover, Fiammetta, had given precise instructions, in his will, on how to prepare his funeral Chapel in the Church that Sunday consorted with coworkers. During Holy week, then sat to hear the preaching of the first benches all their father confessor. The arrangement was not accidental: Fiammetta was a courtesan, and the San Agustin Church was called the Church of prostitutes. Not far from here, near via dei Coronari, is Piazza Fiammetta, dedicated, after just a few decades from death (1512), this famous woman of pleasure, lover of Cesare Borgia and other Cardinals from lustful Holy City. If you are interested, on the corner of the square and via degli Acquasparta, is his home, a 15th-century building with Tower.

  • Mine is a review of the church, not the nearby cafe. St Eustace is a nice little church of the late baroque period. There is a nice collection of late paintings along the side altars as well. I'm not sure I would make a trip here just for this church, but it's worth a visit if you're passing by.
  • Small and beautiful Basilica between the Pantheon and Piazza Navona, behind Palazzo Madama, seat of the Senate. Noteworthy is the crib that according to tradition is one of the cribs that are annually during the Christmas season.
  • This place has terrible customer service. The employees made a huge mistake and did not want to fix it. THEY ARE NOT A TOURIST FRIENDLY BUSINESS. The coffee was dreadful. Avoid this place. There are much better options than this place in Rome.
  • Ancient church dedicated to Saint Eustace. A young Roman was hunting deer on the monti Prenestini. Well, as he was about to start the arrow, the deer turned to him and, between the antlers, appeared a shining cross. When he realized what it was that sign, was baptized with the name of Eustace.

  • Beautiful Basilica on piazza kept by Augustinian monks, gorgeous interiors and beautiful organ and the altar. Beautiful painting "the madonna of the pilgrims" by Caravaggio.
