    A church in the right setting, Piazza Navona
    This 17th century Church has the privilege to be situated at the beautiful Piazza Navona and opposite the Fountain of the Four Rivers, a masterpiece by Bernini. Furthermore, the Church and the Fountain are kind of connected, because Bernini made the figure closest to the Church put up a protective arm, because this Church could fall in at any moment. However, the Sant'Agnese in Agone Church still stands, an example of a durable building; the prediction of Bernini never came true. The Church is named after the martyr Sant'Agnese and her coffin with a statue of her sister, also a martyr, can be viewed in a chapel inside the Church.

    Hidden gem on a rainy day
    We came in to escape the rain and what a surprise. Like so many other churches in Rome, a baroque masterpiece. More crowded than usual due to the weather, we spent about 30 minutes just exploring. Remember, marble is slippery when wet.

    Nice Baroque church to visit at Piazza Navona
    This is charming Baorque church located at Piazza Navona in the city centre of Rome. It was designed and built between 1652-59 by Girolamo and Carlo Rainaldi as well as Francesco Borromini. Opening hours 9am to 1pm (morning) and 3pm to 7pm (evening) Tuesdays to Sunday, closed on Mondays. You will see an impressive facade as well as a small octagonal shaped nave surrounded by nice altar and artworks. The cupola features a detailed fresco a bit difficult to see when light is dim in the church but nice to view from one of the seats in the church. The main altar featuring a dramatic marble relief 'The Holy Family' by Domenico Guidi (1676) is particularly impressive. Give the church 10-15 minutes to enjoy while sightseeing around Piazza Navona.

    Wonderful
    Church of Sant'Agnese is a grand structure. Id is a 17th-century Baroque church in Rome. It faces onto the Piazza Navona, one of the main urban spaces in the historic centre of the city and the site where the Early Christian Saint Agnes was martyred in the ancient Stadium of Domitian. Beautifully decorated with Corinthian columns.

The church is in the Piazza Navona, and is dedicated to Saint Agnes. Inside, there is a chapel with a relic of the Saint. The church itself is very beautiful, with its chapels and the paintings.

The church is located in Piazza Navona and contains exquisite artwork on its ceiling and walls. When you visit the piazza be sure to stop in the Chiesa to enjoy the ornate art and sculptures.

Magnificent church. The decoration and the ornaments inside are marvellous. There is a special focus on the Holy Spirit in this basilica.

Extraordinary church. Floors are exquisite. You can also hear classical music concerts in the sacristy. They are not free. Borromini was the ultimate architect.

The fabulously Baroque Church of Sant’Agnese in Agone stands at Piazza Navona, a bustling and beautiful pocket in Rome’s historic city center. Initiated in 1652 as a personal chapel for the family of Pope Innocent X, who lived in the Pamphili palazzo next door, the church is known for its frescoed ceilings, sculptures and altars, and impressive marble work. Visiting this wonderful church goes hand in hand with visiting the Piazza. The layout of the interior is based on a Greek cross plan. The seven altarpieces all take the form of bas-reliefs or statues rather than paintings. The high altar sports a bas-relief of The Holy Family with St John the Baptist and his Parents and is very impressive in its own right. Add this Church to your top ten list and you will not be disappointed!

I had been to this Church some years past, but this new visit was a new experience. This time, I was fortunate to get a leaflet that provided some guidance on the Church and while other tourists pondered around, I was able to educate myself on specifics. I recommend visiting the left side chapel with the relic of St Agnes, and spending some time appreciating the central dome.
