Chiesa Di Sant’andrea Del Quirinale
Gian Lorenzo Bernini | 1670 | Visitor Information
The Church of St Andrew's at the Quirinal was built in 1658-1661, after an older church had been demolished. Cardinal Camillo Pamphilii commissioned Gian Lorenzo Bernini to build it, and the church is considered one of the finest examples of Roman Baroque style, with prime examples of balance and harmony with regard to the choice of materials and amount of light is allows. It is said that Bernini did not charge a fee to design this church, and his only payment was a daily donation of bread from the novitiates’ oven. Bernini considered the Church of St Andrew's at the Quirinal as his only perfect work.
