A Tourist in Rome - San Lorenzo in Lucina
|Location:||4 blocks west from the Spanish Steps and 3 blocks south|
|Time:||about 30 minutes|
|Hours:||8 AM - 8 PM|
San Lorenzo in Lucina is a small Roman Catholic church just off Via del Corso. I'll be honest with you: I didn't pay much attention at all to the church; I went here exclusively to see the Bernini sculpture of the Bust of Gabriele Fonseca in the 4th chapel on the right-hand side, pictured in the 2nd, 3rd and 4th photos below. I found a couple other sculptures to be interesting contrasts to the Bernini work and took photos of them, but the highlight of this church by far was the Bernini sculpture.
The original location of the Solar Obelisk was at the southwest corner of the block containing this church, and the original location of the Ara Pacis was just east of this church.See also:
