Description

The national French church of Rome serves the French community in Rome. It was completed in 1589 and dedicated to the Virgin Mary, St. Dionigis Areopagitas and St. Louis IX, king of France. The French style is evident in the facade, which has several statues depicting its national history. The Church of Rome's French community was chosen as the place of sepulture for the higher prelates and members of Rome's French community. There are three of Caravaggio's masterpieces depicting the life of St Matthew inside.
