When I look at Saint Teresa I felt num,got chilies in my back ,it is a moment of silence that never ends and one does not get tired of looking at.
Stays with me for ever,I still think of the Image
No one should miss such a feeling

This small church with a beautiful interior, including Bernini's finest sculpture is not on the typical tourist path. We were one of half a dozen people there in the morning enjoying classic frescos and sculptures!

Worth seeing for sure and it's free!
The sculpture is placed quite high and far away from the public but you can still take in what an amazing piece of art it is!

I had hoped for a close view of Bernini's sensitive portrayal, but in the church, visitors are kept some distance from the sculpture and St Teresa is turned away, so her all-important facial expression is scarcely visible.

Beautiful and compelling. Just sit down beside it and savor the moment... there are very few such moments in life. There are two parts to the masterpiece, the first which everyone notices and the second, a carving of the patrons of Bernini watch the transformation from a balcony on the right wall of the knave.
