  Gesù ceiling
by martin_nl

I think this church is by many overlooked. But why? It is in my opinion one of the most beautiful of all of Rome. The frescoes on the ceiling almost seem to fall down. They seem very real and the shadows behind them give a special look to them. There are quite some churches in the area of the Gesù that tried to copy this ceiling, but they didn't succeed at all.

Address: Piazza della Gesù
Directions: From Piazza Venezia go into the Via del Corso. Turn left in the Corso Vittorio Emanuele II. You should see the church on your left eventually.
