"Excellent Place "

Beautiful church commemorating Agnes, an early Christian martyr. Learn a little about her before you enter and it will make it a much more meaningful experience—won’t give it all away here! Off to the side is a small quiet area, really not for gawking or photos, where the skull and relics of young Agnes are kept.

Sant'Agnese in Agone

Sant'Agnese in Agone is a 17th-century Baroque church in Rome, Italy. It faces onto the Piazza Navona, one of the main urban spaces in the historic centre of the city and the site where the Early Christian Saint Agnes was martyred in the ancient Stadium of Domitian. Construction began in 1652 under the architects Girolamo Rainaldi and his son Carlo Rainaldi. After numerous quarrels, the other main architect involved was Francesco Borromini.

The church is a titular deaconry, with Gerhard Ludwig Müller being the current Cardinal-Deacon.
