getting there: from the Pantheon, onto Via del Pantheon to Via delle Colonelle
The church is exquisite – ornately decorated with pink marbles, gilding, frescoes and stucco work.
Dedicated to Mary Magdalene, the church was completed in the 18th century.
The nave ceiling frescoes, showing scenes of the life of Mary Magdalene, were by Michelangelo Cerruti (1732).
The gold and white stucco decorated organ above the doorway when you first enter the church dates from the 18th century.
