ornate decoration in roman churches

The art and architectural details of Roman churches seem to outdo each other especially in the baroque refurbishments. Note the fleur-de-lis in golden mounts. The eyes of the viewer are invited always to raise their gaze up to the ‘heavens’ as they sit or wander around the churches.

      1. It lacks the outstanding artistic objects (eg, paintings) found in many churches. The beauty here is in the architecture from the pre-Baroque era. It gives an alternative view to what Roman churches can be. Also I love the fact that you enter a place of tranquility in a quite busy area of the city. It’s an overlooked space in Rome.
