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.

  • In a side street from the outside piazzetta has a pretty sight ... Also worth a visit is the Church.

  • The ceiling is not to be missed, has mirrors for the ceiling paintings can appreciate better, and possesses an impressive acoustic. We had the good fortune to be able to sing in this church with a choir and the wonderful acoustics that has impacted us.

  • From our hotel, we could see the exterior of this church - and it looked a little shabby from our position just above the rooftops. We didn't actually venture into it until we had already been in Rome...  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.
