Chiesa del Gesù, Palermo, Italy

Built by the Jesuits in Sicily (1563-1633),  this church  looks plain and modest from the outside, but like many other 16th century ecclesiastical buildings, it is richly decorated inside.

Once inside, take in the 17th-century Baroque style sculptures and murals that decorate the church from floor to ceiling,  which have been carried out over the past 200 years. Take a tour of the church to visit the 15 chapels, the presbytery and the pipe organ built in 1952.
