Church of the Gesù

Highly recommended
Often copied, this is the epitome of a Jesuit church, combining the solemnity and simplicity of the Counter-Reformation with exuberant interior decoration from a century later, at the very height of the Baroque movement. Baciccia's frescoes painted on the nave vault and the chapel of St Ignatius by Andrea Pozzo are breathtaking.
