Sant’Agnese Church on the Piazza Navona


Baroque church on the Piazza Navona

The church Sant’Agnese is dedicated to Saint Agnes. According to legend, the martyr was presented naked to a screaming crowd at this very place when suddenly her hair grew long to preserve her dignity. Indeed, the martyr is likely to have been beheaded here in the 3rd Century. The baroque church was built by Girolamo Rainaldi, Carlo Rainaldi and Borromini. Borromini is mainly responsible for the two bell towers, the crowned dome and the outer façade. The convex and concave shapes give a nice overall impression, which is continued in the interior.

Interesting in the interior are the remains of a Roman mosaic pavement and the "hair miracle of St. Agnes" by Alessandro Algardi.
