What travelers say:

The St. Ignatius Church in Rome was built in 1626, and its interior inherited the usual gorgeous style of the Jesuit church, which is breathtaking. The biggest attraction in Ignatius Chapel is the ceiling fresco on the top of the church, which is comparable to Michelangelo's "Genesis" in the Sistine Chapel. In 1685, the Jesuit friend Pozzo painted a spectacular fresco on the ceiling of the nave, depicting the scene of Saint Ignatius being welcomed by Christ and the Virgin in heaven. The ceiling of the church is actually flat, but it looks curved. This is the earliest and strongest naked eye 3D painting in the world. The Ignatius Church in Rome is to the east of the Pantheon, but there are few Chinese tourists here, and it is estimated that it is not enough to be popular. St. Ignatius’s Church is found in many places around the world. The real name of the most famous Xujiahui Catholic Church in Shanghai is St. Ignatius’s Church.
