Church of Saint Ignatius of Loyola - Rome

The Church of Saint Ignatius of Loyola at Campus Martius is dedicated to Ignatius of Loyola, the founder of the Jesuit order. Built between 1626 and 1650, this Baroque style church was once the chapel to the Collegio Romano - the first free Jesuit university in Rome - before it moved to a bigger building elsewhere. Inside the church, you are sure to be impressed by its beautiful, yet at the same time, imposing interior, including ornate altars, coloured marbles, extensive gilding and strong Trompe-l’œil paintings - all of which combine to show effortlessly the triumph of Saint Ignatius into heaven.
