Rome : Santa Maria Sopra Minerva


While many other medieval churches in Rome have been given Baroque makeovers that cover Gothic structures, the Minerva is the only extant example of original Gothic church building in Rome. Among several important works of art in the church are Michelangelo's statue Cristo della Minerva (1521) and the late 15th-century (148893) cycle of frescos in the Carafa Chapel by Filippino Lippi.
