Chiesa di Sant'Agnese in Agone, Rome

4.7
#41 of 255 in Historic Sites in Rome
Church Tourist Spot
Admire the beauty of Chiesa di Sant'Agnese in Agone, a 17th-century Baroque church built on the exact location where St. Agnes was martyred. Although smaller in comparison to other churches in the area, it leaves just as strong an impression, with a main altar and another six around the dome dedicated to martyrs, including full-scale statues depicting the circumstances of their deaths. Visit the side church to view the preserved skull of St. Agnes. Many marble details and frescos accentuate the church's beauty, and if you're lucky, you could catch a choir performance. Alternatively, buy a ticket to listen to a concert and fully appreciate the building's excellent acoustics.

  • Once upon a time I saw a pic of inside of this church online and put it on my MUST IN ROME list, so I was so happy to visit it. It said no pictures allowed so at first I thought it's for real but yea ...  more »
  • Just a short walk from the Pantheon - and well worth it... Just happened to wander in since the gate was open and was blown away by the intricate details.  more »
  • Stands on piazza Navona. The Interior returns the impression of greater magnitude because of the scattered light from the Windows of the dome, with seven altars.

  • Well worth a visit. Free entry. Also attended a concert society concert held regularly in another section of the church, spectacular.
  • Beautiful Catholic church with a variety altar pieces depicting the martyrdoms of first, second and third century Roman saints. Free entrance.
  • Look in here and walk to the small room to the left rear. Cool on a hot day.
  • Small but really interesting to visit. This is one among few churches where you could see information on english.
  • Impressive facade on the piazza and an incredibly beautiful interior with extraordinary bas-reliefs in each chapel.

Where to stay in Rome

For easy foot access to most of the city's main historical sites, consider staying in Rome's old town center. The area is conveniently placed for public transport, only a walk away from the city's main railway station. Accommodations here span all hotels sectors, from cheap hostels to luxury brand names. To avoid the steep prices and overcrowding of the town center, explore the hotels in the inner suburbs of Rome. They offer comfortable rooms and excellent food at a fraction of the price charged by the centrally located hotel chains. Another affordable option is the area around Vatican, which boasts a good selection of family-owned B&Bs.
