The Angel with the Crown of Thorns and the Angel with the Scroll were part of the original 10 angels designed by Gian Lorenzo Bernini for the Bridge of Angels, but the only two carved by him personally.
Ludovico Gimignani has three paintings in the church. In the first chapel on the right is the Baptism of Christ, in the next chapel is Saint Michael the Archangel and in the sacristy is the Crucifixion.
The friary can also be visited through a door at the right of the church facade. In the cloister are frescoes by Francesco Cozza and Antonio Gherardi showing scenes of the life and miracles of Saint Francis of Paola.
It is also interesting to walk around the exterior of the church to look up and see Borromini's white bell-tower.
