Santa Maria degli Angeli e dei Martiri, frequently used for state ceremonies, was founded in the mid-16th century inside the Diocletian Baths. It was built to designs by Michelangelo, who sought to minimize alterations to the original building, simply linking several different spaces and conserving the original walls and columns. A less respectful reconstruction was carried out, in honor of the holy year 1750 by Vanvitelli, who altered the angle of its positioning. Salvator Rosa and Armando Diaz are buried here. Amongst the works of art is a painting by Domenichino, to be found in the presbytery, The Martyrdom of Saint Sebastian. In the sacristy, Michelangelo's original designs are on show. Also, the Meridian Line passes through the church along which you will find the Bianchini's famous sundial.
Santa Maria della Concezione was founded by the brother of Pope Urbano VIII Barberini, the cardinal Antonio Barberini at the beginning of the 17th Century. The church has a modest appearance in regard to other churches of the baroque period, as it reflects the Capuchin order to which the cardinal belonged. This church is known to Romans as the charnel house of the Capuchins, throughout the centuries, the friars arranged the bones and skulls of their fellow brothers into the form of crosses or other Christian symbols. Although the church is simple in style, it still houses some important works, like the painting by Guido Reni, which depicts St Michael the Archangel crushing Lucifer, as well as works by Andrea Sacchi, Pietro da Cortonoa, Domenichino and in the entrance of the sacristy, a work entitled St Francis in prayer, which is attributed to Caravaggio.

Romans call this church San Carlo because of its diminutive size. In fact, it could easily fit into one of the pillars that supports the dome of St Peter's. Carried out according to Borromini's design, it has a beautiful oval-shaped dome brightened by hidden windows. Borromini's hand is evident in all of the detail: the confessionals that mirror the architecture of the church for example, or the wrought-iron well in the middle of the cloister. At the main altar, the French artist Pierre Mignard portrays San Carlo Borromeo in an altarpiece. The vestry holds another painting of the saint in adoration of the Trinity by Orazio Borgianni. Do not miss the perfectly proportioned and harmonious cloister.

The light coming from the windows of the cupola and the lamps, highlights the stucco work and the gold leaf.

Above the main altar, you will see a painting by Borgognone representing the Martyrdom of St Andrew.
