The Church of the Gesu (or Gesu Church) is considered the mother church of the Jesuits religious order. It is also sometimes called a hidden gem in the city of Rome. I quite literally stumbled on to this beautiful place when I found myself passing through the Piazza del Gesu. It wasn't on my list of places to visit but, since I was there I popped inside for a quick peek.
I ended up staying a lot longer admiring the beautiful dome and the frescos and other artifacts.
It seemed that everywhere I looked there was something beautiful to see.
I even got to see an art restorer at work in one of the church's chapels. The chapel itself was closed off by scaffolding and looking up I saw this restoration worker carefully working on one of the frescos on the chapel's ceiling. I don't believe I could do that job, constantly reaching up above me while holding my paintbrush and other tools steady.
