|About these ratings|
This featured chapel from Dan Brown's "Angels and Demons" is now heavily trafficked by Robert Langdon wannabes. But baroque art fans might want to brave the crowds for a look at Gianlorenzo Bernini's Cornaro Chapel, which features the Ecstasy of St. Teresa statue.
Recent visitors can't stop gushing about Santa Maria della Vittoria. Many say the church is nothing short of stunning, noting that the detail of Bernini's Ecstasy of Saint Teresa is truly incredible.
You can find this church less than a mile west off of the Barberini metro stop. This active church is open daily but closes for lunch Monday through Saturday and is only open in the afternoon on Sundays.
