Owner description: Closed on Thursdays! The famous painter Caravaggio (1573-1610) was commissioned to paint for this church, where in one of its chapels is his realistic naturalism in three scenes of the life of St. Matthew.

“Caravaggio”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 June 2012

Magnificient paintings. Read the novel "The Lost Painting" while you are wandering around Rome. It gives the feeling of the time of Caravaggio.

“Caravaggio delight”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 June 2012

Three great Caravaggios - all St. Matthew. Right near Piazza Navona - and close to St. Ignatius and Gesu Churches - best baroque churches in Rome. Both Jesuit churches with lots of Ignatian stuff. Pantheon a 3 minute walk. Colloseum about 20 minutes. Vatican 20 minute walk.

“Beautiful.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 June 2012

The churches in Rome are cool and relaxed. The art work was beautiful- marble is such a creative stone to work with. Well worth a vist.
