Santa Maria della Vittoria

7 minutes walk

This church was initially dedicated to St. Paul and built in the early seventeenth century. It was later renamed on the White Mountain battle in the Thirty Years' War. The ecstasy of Saint Teresa (transverberation of Saint Teresa of Avila) is famous for this church by Gian Lorenzo Bernini, a well-known sculptor from the late Renaissance period. It is a sculpture that represents a sculptural complex, in which the saint and the angel that pierces her heart with a dart are depicted. The two figures are surmounted by a light that illuminates them from above, created with golden metal rays that form the backdrop to the representation. Many faithful, every year, come to visit this church, but also many lovers of history and the history of art.
