Description

The elliptical apse, the drum of the dome and the bell tower are attributed to Borromini, who worked on the building since 1653. The bell tower is truly amazing: a square plan with varied orders used in total creative freedom, culminating in the misaligned crowning with its supports transfigured into Herms – cherubs and scrolls that hold the banners of the saint.
Inside, two sculptures by Bernini are preserved: they are of the angels who carried out the Sant’ Angelo bridge and that the pontiff wanted to shelter from the ravages of time. They represent “the Angel with the crown of thorns” and “the Angel with the cartouche”, showing symbols of the Passion.
