Église St-Jacques (Gesù)

Interesting
This church is the former chapel of a college built in the early 17C. The interior is decorated with continuous frescos and bas-reliefs and has a profusion of details in its decoration. Fluted pilasters lead to a vault decorated with trompe l'oeil. The building gives a theatrical impression with ornaments and gold. We counted 164 painted and 48 sculpted cherubs.
