A Golden Dome

The Church of Saint Andrew's at the Quirinal is titular church that was built for of the Jesuit seminary on the Quirinal Hill. It is an important example of Roman Baroque architecture, and was designed by famous artist Gian Lorenzo Bernini. Bernini received the commission in 1658 and the church was constructed by 1661, although the interior decoration was not finished until 1670. Bernini considered the church one of his most perfect works; his son, Domenico, recalled that in his later years, Bernini spent hours sitting inside it, appreciating what he had achieved. Once inside, tilt you neck upwards and admire the golden stuccoed dome, which the daylight illuminates and makes shine.
