Santa Maria della Vittoria

 

 

A church full of 1600s bling and the famous Bernini sculpture "The Ecstasy of Santa Theresa" - also in a forest of bling.

 

 

We prefer the other Bernini ecstasy in Trastevere.  It's a tad less ecstatic but free of bling and supporting cherub and tourists and Dan Brown devotees.
