One of those treasures that's all too common in Rome, Santa Maria della Vittoria houses the incredible Bernini sculpture "The Ecstasy of St. Theresa" so circumspectly that you'd never know it was there. The church is beautiful, but the sculpture itself, like so many of Bernini's works, is truly masterful.

Rome is filled with precious pieces of art history that a traveler in a hurry could overlook, and this church is one. Secreted inside is Bernini's masterwork Ecstasy of Saint Teresa, a prime example of sensual Baroque sculpture.

I love me some Bernini. I also love Roman churches. Santa Maria della Vittoria offers the sculpture master's "The Ecstasy of St. Theresa." Looking upon it will have you sharing a similar sensation.

This church houses the outrageously theatrical sculpture called the Ecstacy of Saint Theresa in the Cornaro Chapel by Gianlorenzo Bernini, a genius artist. The statue is like a stage which depicts a moment described by Saint Teresa of Avila in her autobiography, where she had the vivid vision of an angel piercing her heart with a golden shaft, causing her both immense joy and pain. Meanwhile members of the Cornaro family look on from the sides.

Questa chiesa nel centro di Roma non sembra promettere molto da fuori, ma vale la visita per vedere la spettacolare opera scultorea di Bernini che ritrae l'Estasi di Santa Teresa, una delle più belle sculture del barocco italiano.

Da non perdere, nella piccola e bellissima chiesa di Santa Maria della Vittoria, l'incredible statua di Bernini, l'Estasi di Santa Teresa. Un opera magistrale, unica nella sua riuscita estetica. Consigli odi venire a vederla al tramonto, quando la luce cade sui raggi di bronzo alle spalle della statua ed è tutto un accendersi di fuochi, ed il marmo, latteo, sembra accarezzarsi di luce.
