Piazza del Gesù (Holy Name of Jesus Square) - Rome

In the heart of the Campus Martius, the Piazza del Gesù forms the epicentre of the Society of Jesus. Here you will find the famous church of the society, the Church of the Gesù. This imposing Baroque monument has had a great influence on church design not only in Italy but throughout the world. Next door to this magnificent building is a Jesuit college which incidentally is also the former home and death place of the founder of the Jesuits, Ignatius of Loyola (1491-1556).
