San Luigi dei Francesi (St. Louis of France)

San Luigi dei Francesi

The French National Church, founded by Cardinal Giulio de’ Medici (later Pope Clemente VII) in 1518, and completed in 1589 by Giacomo della Porta and Domenico Fontana is famous for three paintings by Caravaggio dedicated to St. Matthew and for the frescoes by Domenichino.

The vast late-Renaissance facade, probably attributed to Giacomo della Porta, is divided by pilasters into five bays, with three doors and two niches with statues of Lestache (1758). The interior has three naves with five chapels for side and a rich central choir decorated with marble, the style of the whole church is undoubtedly Baroque.
