Amazing Church Mar 14, 2011
Great church to go and visit, lots of history. I was able to spend some quiet time to pray and reflect and thank God for the opportunity. Its a great place for spiritual renewal.

Nice side-trip Oct 20, 2010
Built in the fifteenth century and partially funded by the Archbishop of Rouen, the Basilica di Sant'Agostino is an understated but sophisticated church.

When you get to the entrance of the church, it does look rather plain. However, inside, the church is home to paintings which were created by the famous artists Caravaggio and Raphael. Caravaggio’s painting of Madonna was apparently controversial at the time, as it showed her as bare foot. The sculpture of Mary, created by Sansovino, receives a steady stream of visits from pregnant women, who come to pay their respects for some special reason! The church is also home to a few tombs, including that of Saint Monica.

As this church is located very near Piazza Navona, I recommend it as a little side trip if you happen to be in this part of Rome.
