Santa Maria dell Vittoria is a Baroque gem of a church situated at Piazza San Bernardo. Opening hours are 6.30am to 12pm (morning) and 4pm to 7pm (evening). The church is quite small and can be comfortably visited in 10-15 minutes. What you will see is very impressive.

The church is the work of architect Carlo Maderno (1608-20). The exterior is typical of those constructed during the Baroque era. It is very similar to what you see at Santa Susanna Church also on Piazza San Bernardo. It is nice but does little to prepare one for the splendour seen within.

The interior is a small nave ornately decorated with a remarkable ceiling fresco 'The Virgin Mary Triumphing over Herey and the Fall of Rebel Angels' the work of Giovanni Demenico Cerrini (1675) as well Bernini's masterpiece sculpture 'Ecstasy of Saint Teresa' (1647-52). The main altar, marble inlaid walls, stucco angels and other fine artworks create a feast for the eyes. Grab a seat and just enjoy what you are looking at for a few minutes.

This was one of the prettiest churches we visited. It's greatest piece of art is Benini's Ecstasy of St. Teresa, a wonderful white marble.

We visited this church after reading about the Bernini sculpture here- The ecstasy of St Teresa. It is truly a masterpiece and leaves you speechless. Overall, a good place to visit.

Just look for the crowd inside if you want a head's up on the location of the Ecstasy of St Teresa by a young Bernini. The interior of the church is rather opulent aside from this famous chapel. I never tired of the wonderful interiors of these churches.

We only had a couple of days to explore Rome and knew we would be limited to what we could see. Because this beautiful little church was so close to where we were staying and was en route to other things we had to see we luckily walked in as it was opening and how lucky we were to chose this place.
I am not overly religious & don't know anything about sculptures or art but it really is such an amazing place as soon as you walk in.
It has such a calming and welcoming feeling and just to sit for a while and take it all in is highly recommended. So glad we paid a visit and would suggest you do the same if you are passing.

I did an Art History course a number of years ago and was aware of the Bernini status, Ecstasy of St Theresa but never thought I would get the chance to see it. We got here too early, it closes between 12,30 and 3.30 so we had to hang around the area, but it was worth the wait. Amazing sculpture, with lots of other people coming in completely in awe of it.
It odd a beautiful church but the sculpture steals the show.

This little gem was at the top of our street.
A truly beautiful church and a must pop in if you are passing by.
It really was one of the stunning interiors we’d seen in a small church

We wandered into this church while hunting for another…what a lucky discovery. Not only was in beautiful inside but the Bernini sculpture of the Ecstasy of St Theresa was towards the front. It was awe inspiring as was the altarpiece featuring a mass of clouds and rays with a piece of the original church at its center. Each chapel was a marvel of artistic expression. If you are lucky and speak Italian , the caretaker is happy to give explanation of relics and uncorrupted saints. Highly recommended. A friend once was asked where you see art in Rome and the answer was go to the churches…there was never a truer statement.

Santa Maria della Vittoria is a Baroque Catholic Basilica dedicated to the Virgin Mary. It is known for the masterpiece of Gian Lorenzo Bernini in the Cornaro Chapel, the Ecstasy of Saint Teresa. This is definitely one of the most beautiful sculptures you will ever see. There are also a number of sculptures by Domenico Guidi in Capocaccia Chapel worth seeing, especially ‘The Dream of Saint Joseph’. Don’t miss the decorative ceiling and other works of art which are all truly impressive.
