San Carlo al Corso


San Carlo al Corso review Rate it

Considered to be the final work of the neo-classical movement in Italy, this church was begun in 1839 and completed in 1847. It stands on the site of Santa Maria de' Servi, built in 1317, which was demolished in order to create corso Vittorio Emanuele II. The present structure, essentially a cylinder covered by a voluminous dome, recalls the pantheons in Rome and Paris. The sunlight shimmering through the cupola in the centre is an enchanting sight.
