Courtyard and façade

Sant'Ivo alla Sapienza, Rome

The small church of Sant'Ivo alla Sapienza, built by Borromini at the end of the courtyard of the Palazzo della Sapienza, is one of the great Baroque buildings in Rome. The church rises at the end of the alley of buildings so that the façade can be seen throughout the alleyway.
