I often have trouble liking Baroque churches, finding them over elaborate, but this one is exceptionally beautiful. I don't know the period over which the interior was painted but it looks all of a piece. The dome is very impressive too.

I've travelled all over Italy, and this is one of my top churches based on the extensive 3D artwork. You see some of this on the ceiling at the Vatican museum, and in some other churches, but this one has every column covered. It's wonderful.
