Overview

This church was designed by Bernini and is a fine example of his Baroque period. The interior, which is decorated with pink marble, takes its inspiration from the Pantheon. The light coming from the windows of the cupola and the lamps, highlights the stucco work and the gold leaf. This church was built for the Jesuits and so there are some works by Baciccia, the Jesuit artist of the period. His works are also in the Church of Jesus. Above the main altar, you will see a painting by Borgognone representing the Martyrdom of St Andrew.
