  • It was the Church of reference of the Barberini family, and in fact is just a few meters from the square and the Palace of this noble family, which with Pope Urban VIII and his brother wanted to be buried. In Baroque style, has ten chapels rich in relics and works of art, including the masterpiece of G. Kidneys the Archangel Saint Michael driving out Lucifer, in the sacristy houses a Saint Francis in prayer, recently attributed to Caravaggio. A curiosity concerns the original topography of the Church which was located in a rural area in front of the palazzo Barberini Square, also included a Bell Tower and a large convent that were torn down after the unification of Italy, for the construction of via Veneto and the construction in the late nineteenth century by ministries and other buildings.

  • The crista of the Capuchins is a unique place. If it were not for its religious character, it seems it is the Lair of the members of the Texas Chainsaw Massacre. Incredible.

  • If the double staircase leading to the entrance of this church and the brick façade are quite simple and not seek the attention of the visitor, the surprise crossed the threshold of the temple is even stronger. The Interior is indeed wonderful, as are the works of art to the greater glory of God the Capuchin monks gathered in this. Church. To begin from the Assumption fresco in the vault eighteenth-century work of Coccetti. In the first chapel on the right St. Michael the Archangel by Guido Reni and mocking of Christ by Gherardo delle notti, the second right Chapel Nativity by Lanfranco and third St. Francis stigmatised and Saint's death both by Domenichino. In the first chapel left Ananias rida a'la vista in Sao Paulo by Pietro da Cortona and third St. Francis receives the stigmata of Muziano. Nice also the monks ' choir behind the high altar, and the convent which houses a beautiful Museum a beautiful St. Francis by Caravaggio and the monks ' Cemetery, with chapels adorned with thousands of bones of the Benedictine monks died between 1500 and 1870, macabre but charming!
