Built to commemorate the founder of the Jesuit order, the 17th-century Chiesa di Sant'Ignazio di Loyola features an interior with gilded ornaments, marble reliefs, and remarkable frescoes. Admire the church's Baroque facade before heading inside to study the fresco glorifying St. Ignatius. Covering the ceiling of the nave, it creates an optical illusion of a dome. You can wander the plaza where the church is located to see examples of Rococo architecture.

  • One of the most beautiful places on earth. This building in art. The paintings, the lighting and the architecture are absolutely inspiring. As an artist and photographer this place is painful. One day you can shoot beautiful images and create art and the next day something as simple as a tripod is not allowed. There are no clear rules. One worker thinks something is ok and than the next one says it is forbidden. The one who speaks out the things that are forbidden has clearly no understanding nor respect for art. I had beautiful moments there that were inspiring and in no time my complete day was ruined. I donated money to help this place and was treated with disrespect.
  • One of the many churches in the old town. Beautiful decorations, attention to detail. Everything is kept in perfect condition and clean. I recommend taking a look here on the way of visiting other places.
