The Bollywood Church {Rome}

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.


Chiesa di Santa Maria della Vittoria 
Via XX Settembre 17 


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


  1. I love Gothic buttresses but, you know, there is something uniquely satisfying about unapologetic gilt-covered excess :)

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