Church of Saint Mary of Mercy : Michelin's recommendations

Built by Giacomo Amato between 1678 and 1684, Santa Maria della Pietà is rich in dramatic Roman Baroque details, such as the superimposed Corinthian columns. The interior was entrusted to Guglielmo Borremans; the lovely ceiling (1708) is by Antonio Grano and the stucco by Giacomo Serpotta. Also keep an eye out for the chancel railing which depicts a rising sun (section intended for the Dominican nuns who founded the church).
