The two domed clock towers once told different times — one showing Italian time and one showing French time.
In the church are frescoes by Daniele da Volterra. The Assumption of the Virgin and one of his most famous works The Descent from the Cross were nearly taken to France during the French occupation of Rome in the 18th century.
In the sacristy ante-room is The Coronation of the Virgin, Annunciation and Visitation fresco cycle by Taddeo Zuccari.
