This is one of my favorite churches in Rome

All unrestrained Baroque excess. Rich and lush and over the top. Kind of like a Bollywood film.

Insider tip. The best time to visit is on a sunny winter afternoon when the light streams in.

  2. Ah yes - St. Teresa. I always wonder what Bernini was trying to depict. Religion never comes to my mind.
