  • Linda. The northern people's square is the Church of Santa Maria Del Popolo alongside the Aurelian walls and porta Flaminia which in the past has been the main entrance of Rome until the construction of the railroads. The Church is known to have been built on the site where Nero was buried. Inside there are works of famous artists like Caravaggio ("crucifixion of St. Peter" and "the conversion of St. Paul"), Rafael, Bramante and Bernini.

  • Located in the Piazza del Popolo, between actual square within a square, and the Porta del Popolo? And the place. Anyway, there are many great attractions led by Caravaggio. Bernini, Raphael, is not to be missed anyway.

  • Notable church with precious works of art of painting and sculpture. Immense Caravaggio with the "conversion of Saul" and the "crucifixion of St. Peter. Equally remarkable paintings by Pinturicchio.

  • Great view, the other side of what you would see from Gianocolo and a much easier climb!
  • another setting for a scene in Angels and Demons. It’s also an amazing monument to Renaissance and Baroque art from the names of Raphael and Bernini. Check out Habakkuk and the Angel, as seen from the movie.
  • Very nice church! Great interior!
  • Beautiful. But don't stop with the main attractions...keep looking and you'll find a not well exposed place where you'll be able to witness Caravaggio's paintings: outstanding, I could stare for hours
  • Wonderful place, I really loved it and I will definitely return!
