  • Is a small Baroque's Church not to be missed. Façade located in 4tsu角 is very cool stuff. Inside horizontal oval, adjacent to st. Was interested in comparison with Andrew's at the Quirinal. This is the place visited, next to the courtyard is also very pleasant when you want see.

  • A square Four Fountains, inconspicuous, pasted in a string of buildings, is a unique Baroque church of San Carlo. Its designer Borromini is fascinated by the oval shape of the structure. The injury does not enter.

  • Hours to visit the short opening hours, so caution is required. In the morning 10-1 pm, afternoon 15-at 18:00 7-8 pm is a holiday. Location is climbing up the hill from the Barberini Metro station, about five or six minutes, "Fountain of the four" corners. The façade is quite admirable.

  • The four fountains placed at the corners of the crossroad build a square for the facade of the wonderful church. All designed by Borromini
  • An amazing church by Borromini. It was closed unfortunately, when I was there
  • My favourite church in Rome
  • This beautiful Roman Catholic Christian Church, designed and built by Francesco Borromini, is located in a very busy intersection of Rome, at the intersection of Via del Quirinale, Via XX Settembre and Via delle Quattro Fontane. The external wall of the building houses one of four fountains (hence the name of the street) of the Tiber. This noisy and chaotic situation seems to disappear as soon as you enter the Church and cloister, marking a quiet peaceful point in the historical centre of Rome. The religious community is made up of the brothers of the order of the Trinity that belong to different nationalities, cultures and ethnicities. The complex of San Carlino in its simplicity, simplicity and austerity aims as ideal and appropriate for the training of young international students in the context of religious life and the priesthood. Particularly striking is the Christmas midnight mass which is celebrated every year by the monks in great simplicity and modesty, in perfect harmony with the dictates of the order of the Holy Trinity.

  • Borromini's masterpiece, what has managed to create from a confined space is wonderful!
