Chiesa di Sant'Ignazio di Loyola, Rome

(4.8/5 based on 3,000+ reviews on the web)
Built to commemorate the founder of the Jesuit order, the 17th-century Chiesa di Sant'Ignazio di Loyola features an interior with gilded ornaments, marble reliefs, and remarkable frescoes. Admire the church's Baroque facade before heading inside to study the fresco glorifying St. Ignatius. Covering the ceiling of the nave, it creates an optical illusion of a dome. You can wander the plaza where the church is located to see examples of Rococo architecture. Put Chiesa di Sant'Ignazio di Loyola into our Rome vacation builder to see other points of interest to visit during your vacation in Rome.

  • Yes, that list of churchs that I have been to includes the Vatican it self. But this church has beauty and a history that has something fragile about it. In the ceiling you'll find beautiful paintings...  more »

  • Though in Rome terms just a tad above average. Lovely large painting on the ceiling. Right in the center of the city. Worth a visit while nearby.
  • It's beautiful and worth stopping by. It's free. They are strict about: dress code, being quiet.
  • We found this place by accident and it was awesome! The best part was the old man inside who was silencing the visitors. Come dressed appropriately otherwise you'll need to wear the scarf of shame! Worth a visit for sure !
  • Beautiful place to visit. Built in the 1600s the paintings everyone are magical. Make sure to look up at the ceiling. Very impressive place and highly recommend to visit. Very close to the Pantheon.
  • An impressive and beloved place in Rome, this church is not well visited, but absolutely not someplace you should miss if you are near the Pantheon.
