by martin_nl

You can see many treasures in this church. Bramante designed the apse, and the vault and the frescoues are by Pinturicchio. Raphael designed the Cappella Chigi, which features a mosaic of a kneeling skeleton. 100 years after Raphaels death Bernini finally could finish his work. Don't miss Carvaggio's Conversion of St. Paul and Cruxifixion of St. Peter in the Cerasi chapel.
