The majestic baroque church of St. Ignatius was built in honor of St. Ignatius of Loyola, founder of the Society of Jesus. The episode to which the history of this church is linked was to welcome and guard the remains of Pope Gregory XV, until the definitive burial in the church of St. Ignatius.
The church has a Latin cross plan, with an apse and many side chapels, but certainly worthy of mention is the beautiful canvas of 13 meters in diameter by Father Andrea Pozzo which gives the impression of a dome with a high drum supported by columns. To fully admire its perfect perspective, it is necessary to place a point on the floor indicated by a marble disk.
