A Roman Catholic church, the patron saint is the founder of the Jesuit, Lord Inah & Loyola. The church was built in Baroque style from 1626 to 1650. This church was originally the Church of the adjacent Roman Academy, which moved into a larger new building in 1584 and became the seat of our university. The church now serves as the leading church for the priestly pivot. In 1685, Jesuit Christian Andrea Pozzo painted spectacular murals on the ceiling of the temple, describing Lord St. Ina's welcome in heaven by Christ and the Virgin Mary, surrounded by four continents.
The city of Rome is not a popular church, but in the film "Lord Gu takes you to Italy", just in time, Lord Gu entered the castle of Saint Ina. The murals inside are exquisite and have the feeling of bare-eyed 3D, which fully reflects the ubiquitous artistic atmosphere of Italy. But I really have no intention to absorb the nutrients of art when I run away from Rome.
I love the ceiling here! Sadly, I almost skipped this church while I was enroute to find the Chiesa di Santa Maria sopra Minerva. I'm glad I came across it (it's right next door). Modest, compared to its neighbors, it's still incredibly stunning and worth a visit. The piazza out front is also molto accogliente.
This church has an illusionist painted ceiling that fools the eye--incredible. You need to walk around to confirm it is an illusion.
Amazing ceiling paintings. What's real what's not? Illusion is incredible
The magical ceiling sculptures and buildings make this one of the most spectacular churches I highly recommend. The magic dome is full of three-dimensional images. You can watch for hours with appreciation and inspiration. Don't forget to visit the magnificent interior of the church.
