As you are wandering toward the Pantheon, wander on in to Chiesa di SMM..
The elaborate facade certainly is worth a few minutes of your time to study and imagine the craftsman creating all of it by hand..
Once inside, more to sensational work by skilled artisans to appreciate.

So, you may find yourself "church visiting weary" during your visit to Rome. If that is the case, take a break get an espresso, (you probably need to use the bathroom by now and have figured out they are not free) and rest for a minute. But press on..You will be glad you did as it is doubtful you have these kind of churches "back home"...

The curved facade constructed in the Rococo style with its statues, invites the visitor to enter a truly a beautiful church, we don't think we have seen so many statues adorning the walls of a church they are literally everywhere, however that is not all the frescoes on the ceiling are a sight to behold. The highlight for us was the incredibly ornate organ. All and all, definitely worth a visit.

This Church has a curved Rococo (late Baroque) facade shown several times in the photographs (but beware - there are some other places shown incorrectly!). The interior is worth exploring as an excellent example of a small church building full of Counter Reformation art, commissioned by the Camillian order founded by San Camillo, whose remains are here. The niche statues of personifications of virtue are interesting (Fidelity with a faithful dog and so on).
We visited on the way to the Pantheon - which is one of the top ten in Rome - but it was well worth stopping off at this exemplar for the style!

Beautiful baroque basilica near the Pantheon.

You’ll be impressed by the beautiful paintings and stuccoed walls and ceilings.

Especially artful are some 3D like paintings that even reflect perfectly the lights through the upper windows.

Another gem among the churches of Rome!
