The interior of the church has a single nave, it offers one of the richest examples of baroque decoration for the wealth of marble, stucco and decorations.
The left transept houses, in the Cornaro Chapel, the sculpture of most poetic Bernins: Santa Teresa transfixed by the love of God.
The work appears to be as suspended in space in a cloudy sky illuminated by golden rays, a smiling angel pointing an arrow to the heart of Holy reversed in ecstasy.
The Cornaro Chapel (1644 - 1652) is one of the masterpieces by Bernini, especially for the wise use of eerie and spectacular effects of hidden light, that you appreciate in particular in the afternoon.
