Rome is the richest city in the world of Churches and places of worship.
You will not see them all, and anyway, the richer ones for art masterpieces and history, are the most popular!
A stone’s throw from the Pantheon, the Church of St. Ignazio di Loyola, is worth avisit.
The frescoes and the fake dome (to see).
And, once you enter, on the right welcomes you the plastic wood of the Temple of Christus Rex.
Around this huge Temple dedicated to Christus Rex, were placed several Temples of various ethnic and religious professions, symbolizing the mystical union of peoples throughout the world.
A work that is worth seeing!
And when you leave, stop and admire the opposite building: it looks like the wings of a theater, like a stage set by the buildings… fascinating!
Chiesa di Sant’Ignazio di Loyola
Campo Marzio, Roma
Even those who live in Rome, from time to time, enters the Pantheon!
Majestic Church, rich in history and legends!
A popular legend says that the Roman moat that surrounds the Church, has been excavated by a demon, while waiting to be paid for his services!
Still…. the demons led away from Constantinople, an enormous Bronze pine-cone, that would closed the majestic nine feet hole of the dome of the Pantheon!
When this pagan temple became a Church, the demons that were inside, to get away, blew off the bronze pinecone that from that day …disappeared!
Where this is finished the 9th meters wide bronze pinecone?
Today the hole in the dome is open, leaving a very fascinating sight….
