Long Description:
The church faces 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.

You can see a dove holding an olive branch in several places in the decoration of the church. This one is located on the marble floor in front of the chapel of St Sebastian opposite the chapel of St Agnes.
