Description

The corner-stone was laid only in 1626, but the Church of St Ignatius of Loyola was opened to the public already in 1650, the Holy Year. The Church of St Ignatius of Loyola was built directly where the Temple of Isis had stood during the Imperial era; this was the centre of the egyptian district in the city. The present façade stands where the Acqua Vergine once flowed down in a cascade and still flows underground. The church is located in St Ignatius of Loyola Square, close to Via del Corso and has a particular Baroque style.
