Santo Spirito in Sassia
Adorned with elegant arches, it has a beautiful Bregno marble portal, which is decorated with friezes, garlands of flowers and fruit, and with the Della Rovere coat of arms. Because of its elegance and harmony, this portal is also known as the Porta del Paradiso. The Corsia also stands out for the Octagon that rises above it, enriched with mullioned windows and decorated with coats of arms and medallions, and the entrance archway is by Bernini. The revolving box for taking foundlings into convents is preserved on one side of the building - it took in unfortunate newborns and alms.

We visited it in May 2009 from NY and are having a destination wedding consisting of over 70 guests. The church is located 4 minutes walking from the center of St. Peter's Square (we timed it) and you can see The Vatican from the top of the stairs when standing outside the church. I will remember this for the rest of my life. A true blessing to be getting married here.
