Chiesa di Sant’Agnese in Agone
- Piazza Navona Via S.Maria dell’Anima, 30/A
Built atop the Stadium of Domitian, where St. Agnes was martyred, the church is a masterpiece of Baroque architecture, replete with optical illusions. Small and built according to a Greek-cross plan, it was redesigned in the mid-17th century by Borromini, who created a concave façade and separated the two bell towers, making it appear as if it were larger. Today, it is also an elegant venue for sacred music concerts.
