On our way back from Galleria Borghese we went there to see this amazing Bernini sculpture. This was the forth time in the last few years. If you like sculpture and Bernini it is a must see. The church is very beautiful too

Easily the best church (IMO) to visit in Rome. Every corner of the church is adorned with sculptures, ornaments, paintings etc. It's incredible. We visited as part of the Angels & Demons tour (which I also recommend) so we got the insights from the tour...More

Take time and effort and go to this lovely little church. Of course the "Ecstasy" is the main attraction but it is nice to look at the rest of the church as well

Most people go to this stunning church to see Bernini's 'Ecstasy of St. Teresa' but that is not all there is in this gem of a church. The vault has beautiful frescoes and the sculpture of St Joseph by Domenico Guidi I think equals that...More

We had heard about this little church and decided to visit. From the outside it looks like nothing, on the inside however OH MY GOD! This place is stunning, and definitely worth a visit!!!!!!!!

Old school vibe from the very beginning is the only
way to describe the Esquilino neighbourhood. The
Esquilino takes pride in being one of the oldest areas
in Rome for its key location on one of the city’s
famous seven hills. From an ancient neighbourhood to
its modern incarnation as a multicultural hub,
Esquilino always has something going on—polyglot
