A somewhat simple looking church façade masks an explosion of baroque beauty and magnificence on the inside. This is a narrow church, a bit hidden in the inner city, with a beautiful gilded high altar, several side altars and pulpit. The ceilings are fabulous and painted in trompe l'oeil to give the church the illusion of impressive domes. There are other frescos as well. Those ceilings and altars are augmented by multi colored marble columns which are simply magnificent. The ones near the high altar are pink and white, others are grey, others redish. But the ones that impressed me the most were the large spiral ones in greenish and others of redish marble. Truly superlative works of masters of the 1600s. The church pews are also beautifully carved and in themselves works of art. This church was a fabulous find, one that is not that well noted in many guidebooks. A must see!!
