We visited here while walking nearby along Via dei Coronari from Piazza Navona. Definitely worth a stop if you’re in the area. Free to enter; audio guide is available, for donation. The guide was pretty good – about 10 minutes long.

We came across Chiesa Nuova by chance, during our walk in the streets of the city. We went inside out of curiosity and were impressed by the lovely interior. It's worth your time if you happen to be in the area.

Finally I had to know what this spectacular building was. It's right in the neighborhood I'm in and that's what you do in Rome. Explore and find hidden gems that no-one is talking about but you love!
