Description

The core of the building dates back to 1586. Since 1633 it houses the Congregation for the Propagation of the Faith founded by Gregory XV in 1622. It was Urban VIII who began construction of the building by inviting his protégé, Bernini, to design the facade overlooking Piazza di Spagna. The new pope Innocent X turned to Borromini whom he commissioned to design the facade overlooking Via di Propaganda. With Borromini a touch of fantasy was introduced.
