Interior view

San Carlo alle Quattro Fontane, Rome

The church interior is both extraordinary and complex. The three principal parts can be identified vertically as the lower order at ground level, the transition zone of the pendentives and the oval coffered dome with its oval lantern.

The picture shows the oval dome with its intricate geometrical pattern.
