  • I can't understand why the visit of this church is ignored by many. Beautiful monument, exceptional ceiling, architectural elements. It is not a church, is a masterpiece of art and architecture. There is no ticket to pay but you have to pay attention to opening hours.

  • Borromini although constrained by the small space was able to create a complex functional. The Church has a façade narrow and high, next to Borromini's Bell Tower soars façade, beside the Church, the convent. The Church and convent overlook via del Quirinale.

  • Also known as "San Carlino", it is a masterpiece of Baroque architecture. It was the first independent order received by Francesco Borromini in Rome, in the year 1663.

  • Quintessential Baroque architecture. One of Borromini's best churches. If you'd like to compare this to one of his contemporaries, simply go a bit further down the street and take a peak at Bernini's take on the Baroque. What a contrast!
  • Symmetry, and geometry in its utmost simplicity! Amazing structural complexity, playing with space and flow. Una chiesa che marca il cambio di una epoca e la genialità di Borromini.
  • Comparatively less art work and documentation. But I had a chance to visit tomb where saint is buried.
  • amazing church, don't miss the lower floor where Boromini designed his grave but wasn't berried there because he committed suicide.
  • Pretty church from the outside, unfortunately it was closed. It's only open on some days from 10 to 1pm.

Where to stay in Rome

For easy foot access to most of the city's main historical sites, consider staying in Rome's old town center. The area is conveniently placed for public transport, only a walk away from the city's main railway station. Accommodations here span all hotels sectors, from cheap hostels to luxury brand names. To avoid the steep prices and overcrowding of the town center, explore the hotels in the inner suburbs of Rome. They offer comfortable rooms and excellent food at a fraction of the price charged by the centrally located hotel chains. Another affordable option is the area around Vatican, which boasts a good selection of family-owned B&Bs.
