Chiesa di Sant'Ignazio di Loyola, Rome

(3,200+ reviews on the web)
Religious Site Church
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.

  • This is a spectacular church and our favorite in rome to visit. the sculpture, frescos and ornate decoration was beautiful. We actually liked this more that St Peters and the sistine chapel  more »
  • Both the interior and exterior of this church are worth seeing. Wonderful decorations and a cool and quiet interior - perfect stop while wandering around Rome. Warrants the high TA rating.  more »
  • Why look a skeletons of the past without flesh when you can see a beautiful truly amazing church incorporating much of the imperial marble and columns from the ruins in its design. Great place to cool...  more »

  • Great place! Inside it seems that Chiesa has a big three-dimensional dome, but it hasn't got it. That's all due to the great artist's skill. Wonderfull painting. Recommended to visit
  • This is one of the churches that brought me more peace of soul! It's a blessing, visit, participate, you'll enjoy every second!
  • Amazing optical illusion with the dome. First stand on the small gold circle in the middle of the nave. Look at the dome. Now walk to underneath the dome.
  • great old church great optical illusion on the bronze ceiling panel. when in Roma don't miss this true unique wonder. i was able to show this to a friend for a few minutes by asking the local cop for 5 minutes time to illegally park next to the church per favorie milla grazie. my eyes only gushed a little blood and my skin burst into flames one time until i was back into the rental car
  • Unbelievable experience and breathtaking church. The most impressive is the marmol masterpiece of the Ludovico Ludovisi funeral monument with all the cloth details and frienges carved from marmol!!
