The Basics

Although the church is dedicated to Saint Augustine, it’s actually the saint’s mother—Saint Monica—who is entombed there, but the Basilica's main attraction is by far the rich art inside. You can visit the church by joining a walking tour of Rome's Baroque masterpieces that includes the art in this basilica as well as in other Roman churches by Caravaggio, Raphael, Michelangelo, and Bernini.

Caravaggio Comes to Life
Serena was an excellent tour guide. She is very knowledgeable about the works and life of Caravaggio. She pointed out important aspects of his paintings and shared fascinating stories of his life. To view these masterpieces with her made the experience so much more memorable. Walking through the city with her narrative brought an invaluable aspect that should not be missed. I was thrilled that I took the tour with her and was grateful for the opportunity.

Sansovino's Miraculous Madonna

It is said that Jacopo Sansovino's La Madonna del Parto was originally a Roman statue of the Empress Agrippina holding her infant son Nero, which Sansovino reworked into a Christian rendering of the Madonna and child centuries later. The statue is said to have miraculous fertility powers, so it is usually surrounded by offerings from women who believe it interceded on their behalf.
