The Baroque church of Sant’Andrea delle Fratte—while small—houses impressive religious artifacts and artworks worthy of a visit. The 17th-century church is home to a single nave and three chapels that include paintings by Borgognone and ornate frescoes and stuccoed angels by Marini. Of particular note are the sculpted angels on each side of the presbytery, created by Bernini.
The church's striking dome and tower, designed by Borromini, contrasts its modest interior, and serves as a beacon to those traversing Rome's top attractions. Located between the Spanish Steps and the Trevi Fountain, the church is a highly-recommended stop along the way.
You can visit the church, which honors St Andrew, as part of a city walking tour of sites dedicated to Mary and different saints.
The church is located at Via di Sant’Andrea delle Fratte in Rome. It is near the Mercede bus station, and is a five-minute walk south of the Spanish Steps and north of the Trevi Fountain.
Sant'Andrea delle Fratte is open daily July through September from 6:30am to 12:30pm and from 4:30pm to 8pm. It is open October through June from 6:15am to 1pm and 4pm to 7pm. Entrance to the church is free.
