This baroque church, San Carlo alle Quattro Fontane is designed and commissioned by Francesco Borromini . It has oval dome and altar and is with white colour. Worth seeing it.

Does not look very pretty, or striking from the outsside, but take a look inside and see the beauty of this church. Translated into Saint Charles at the Four Fountains, the church dates from 1646, and is noted for its oval dome, and altar
