  • Dedicated to the Virgin Mary, the church is mostly known for holding the masterpiece of the Ecstasy of Saint Teresa within its Chapel. The statue was crafted by Gian Lorenzo Bernini between the years 1647–1652 and created controversy due to the expressions depicted within the perfectly worked face within the marble sculpture.
  • Piazza Navona is littered with Baroque masterpieces, including those of the world famous "Bernini" The area was originally used as an Athletics stadium in the year of 80 AD under Emperor Titus, which later turned into the city's market in the 1500's. The square has kept its original shape and the surrounding buildings were erected upon the ancient crowd stand foundations.
  • The Pantheon, a former Roman temple, is located within central Rome, within walking distance to other well known sites as Navona Square and the Trevi Fountain. Now a functional church, it is the burial place for many Resniense masters such as Raphael as well as 2 kings of Italy. The monument is very unique with a circular, Oculus roof allowing sunlight and even rain into the beautiful church. The original building was constructed almost 2000 years ago and Michelangelo was noted as saying that the design is of Angels and cannot be of human concept.
  • St. Angel Bridge is one of the most ancient ones of Rome. It is true that it was partly restored and embellished over the centuries, but originally it was commissioned by the Roman Emperor Hadrian in the II century AD. What makes this bridge so unique dates back to mid of the XVII century, when Gian Lorenzo Bernini, the master of Baroque art, embellished it with the statues of 10. Today Baroque and Ancient Roman relive together in this iconic landmark of the Eternal city.
  • Completely designed by the master of the Baroque Era Gian Lorenzo Bernini, this worldwide famous square is one of the most iconic places in the word! This is the place where the Popes offer their audiences and blessings, and where the Christians use to wait and see the “white smoke” coming out from the roof of the Sistine Chapel, when a new Pope is elected. 140 statues of Popes, Angels and Saints look down on us from the balaustrades of the colonnades and extend their embrace to the city and all mankind right in the heart of the sacred side of Rome.
