Construction on this church began in 1604 and was completed in 1612; work continued on the Baroque ornamentation, and the project was deemed complete in 1740 when the frescoes on the ceiling were finished.
An attached monastery was partially demolished (to make way for other construction) in 1932; Allied bombing in 1943 destroyed what was left of those buildings.
There was a lot to see inside the church. It was overwhelming. Every view was full of…everything. Here’s a tiny slice of the interior, so you can get the idea of what we were up against when it came to knowing where to look and what to photograph.
