  • For a late afternoon visit better. At the closing when the lights go out. Near darkness stirs a magic atmosphere.

  • Little-known and highly decorated Church as almost all in Rome. Brightly colored in green and blue paintings decorate walls and ceilings. Pretty side chapels the most significant the altar and painting that crowns it with the tree of Jesse finished in an icon of the face of Christ. It is worth approaching to see it when you are in the area.
