San Carlo ai Catinari

< previous > < index > < next >

The dome was designed by Rosato Rosati. It has a wonderful coffered interior, and is the third largest in a Roman church after San Pietro in Vaticano and Sant'Andrea della Valle. The pendentives of the cupola are frescoed with the Cardinal Virtues (1627-30) by Domenichino who designed the stucco decoration in the dome and probably the other main vaults.
