  • Church with a Romanesque Bell Tower and a classicistic façade, with an eclectic expressive interiors: neoclassicism with baroque chapel, main altar and ceiling. In the beautiful baroque chapel (the fourth from the entrance on the right side) there is a bust of Bernini. Also, the columns on the right hand side is the gravestone by Nicolas Poussin (one of my favourite artists). Below bust artist resides the most mysterious terrain of his paintings "Arkadskie shepherds".

  • In the column, not far from Montecitorio, the basilica of San Lorenzo in Lucina is located in the 4th century on a property that a Roman matron, Lucina, had made available to Christians for their worship. Originally two aisles, now has a single nave with four chapels on each side leading to the altar, on which there is the famous painting of Crucified by Guido Reni. In the Church is buried the French painter Nicolas Poussin, in a tomb built in the 19th century by Chateaubriand.
