Chiesa del Gesù (Chiesa dei Santi Ambrogio e Andrea)
This former church (6C-7C) dedicated to St Ambrose is a Baroque gem, and was entirely rebuilt by the Jesuits at the turn of the 16C and 17C. Built by Tibaldi in 1597, it boasts a sumptuous marble and gilded stucco interior and important works of art. Admire Guido Reni's Assumption, the Crucifixion by Simon Vouet, as well as two fine Rubens paintings: Circumcision, painted for the high altar, and St Ignatius Healing a Possessed Woman.
