Reviewed 4 August 2014 via mobile

We checked this church out on our way to Piazza del Popolo. It's a beautiful church, very colorful painting. My mother and I enjoyed walking around inside.

“Worth It Just For the Caravaggios”
Reviewed 31 July 2014 via mobile

This baroque church in the Piazza del Populo isn't exactly a hidden gem but you certainly wouldn't want to miss it. The two works by Caravaggio are stunning--
Crucifixion of St. Peter and the Conversion of St. Paul (Carracci's Assumption of the Virgin hangs between them in the chapel to the left of the altar). The chapel with the two Bernini sculptures were sadly under construction when I visited.

The purpose of my visit here was to see the two Caravaggio's that are within this little church. The church itself is just off the main Piazza del Popolo and is worth a visit. It has the usual chapels within it with their own paintings and frescoes which are equally as beautiful but it is the Crucifixion of St Peter and The Conversion Of St. Paul On The Road To Damascus that drew me in. They are just wonderful and no entrance fee except the euro required to light the little chapel.

“Amazing works of art inside”
Reviewed 28 July 2014

Lots of reasons to see this church - mainly a chapel filled with Bernini sculptures, and another one with two masterpieces by Carravaggio. Plus, the location at the north end of town is near the city wall, and not too far from the Borghese Gallery, so there's lots to see in the neighborhood...also near the metro.

“Fascinating Sculptures”
Reviewed 23 July 2014

This is a small church, in a lovely area. There is a beautiful plaza around it and a nice neighborhood for wandering. We were most intrigued by all the odd sculptures to be found there - a little on the macabre-side with a dash of...pirates?
