This church contains two great Caravaggio paintings, the Crucifixion of St Peter and the Conversion of St Paul. The drama of the paintings is a must experience while in Rome.Recommended for:Art & Design Lovers

Caravaggio! Boy, do I love this guy's work. Chiaroscuro is one of my favorite techniques from painting, the contrast of light and dark. Dramatic! Visitors to the Chiesa di Santa Maria del Popolo get two (not one, but two) paintings by Caravaggio. Aside from that, it's a beautiful church, though not the most beautiful in Rome.

Located at the very end of Piazza del Popolo this church, a little hidden, contains Caravaggio opera. It was one of the first Renaissance churches in Rome. The church features Caravaggio's Martrydom of St. Peter and Conversion of St. Paul. In the Chigi Chapel, created by Raphael, there are statues by Bernini.
