I went to this church with a clear purpose of paying homage to two great minds: one being St. Catherine of Sienna who rests here by the main altar (her head or heart is in Sienna). She is one of very few Catholic women saints who was proclaimed The Doctor of The Church. The other is the patron of the artists Beato (Blessed) Fra Angelico known for his marvelous paintings/frescos. There is also a statue by Michelangelo of Christ carrying the cross by the altar. Wonderful overall. Very close to 3 other great churches: Gesu, St. Loyola and Pentheon.

Not far from the Pantheon, definitely worth a stop. Free admission, but there was a guy asking for donations at the door. Gladly gave him some change on the way out, since the place was calm, beautiful, and contained very beautiful paintings, statues, and ceilings.

All churches in Rome are beautiful and all have some interesting history. Some more and some less. Even this was fantastic and worth visiting if interested in history and art as well as architecture. Just those beggers...annoying. In front of this church there was a screaming and very aggressive one...

The church is very nice and we were very glad we visited it. However beware of the church "monitors". These were not priests or nuns or any type of legitimate people with the church yet they walked around yelling at people very sharply in Italian. This made our group of only adults very uncomfortable because while we were quiet we understand that at times children are not and the parents seemed like they were trying to do their best with their children. So I would suggest skipping this one if you have children. Also photographers should avoid this one too as they yelled sharply at anyone with a camera, I'm assuming to not use flash but as we didn't see anyone use a flash we can only assume.
