Baroque style is lovely to look at and the entry is free. This magnificent church is a place you must seen. Very easy to get in with metro.There is the altar with the relics of Giuseppe Moscati

This church is amazing both inside and out. The rustication on the exterior is magnificent and the interior has the wow factor in so many ways. A fantastic ceiling and altar; interesting art works and floor.

A plain exterior belies the spectacular interior of this baroque style church. Words cannot easily describe the experience.... you have to see it yourself.

Outstanding church. Doors always open. Just be respectful of those at prayer - which should go without saying.

Free entrance and beautiful inside. There was a service on Sunday evening but we didn't go in. The plaza is a great place to hang out as well.
