Intimate Baroque Church

It’s hard to deny the tranquility that emanates from this ornate Baroque church, which was built in the early 17th century but looks the way it does today thanks to Andrea Pozzo’s contributions in the early 18th century. He added the twin towers to the façade, and is responsible for several of the paintings inside. The church was connected to a university the early 20th century, which is why you might see it referred to as the University Church instead. The rose-colored marble and the gold leaf embellishments aren’t overwhelming, but instead invite visitors to take in the beauty and atmosphere. Even for non-religious tourists, the Jesuit Church puts on wonderful musical performances during Sunday Mass that are absolutely not to miss.

Utrip Tips
