This powerful at the same time striking and wondrous painting stops one to wonder how Caravaggio succeeded to show and paint so expressively all the seven works of mercy in one painting. i was just sitting in front of it trying to figure out how an artist can make a composition of this kind with so much feeling in it....

Wow, wow! We found this by accident and entry was only Euro 5- 7. What value and what art at this charity institution set up in 1601 by young aristocrats. Our only regret was that we discovered it on our last day and didn't have time to see the other six (of the 7 -see photo) Museums of Art, Worship... More

We were tipped by different sites on the internet. And they didn't dissappoint us at all. It was absolutly stunning. The setting of the paintings and the sereen atmosphere contribute to the majesticy of the paintings. I would strongly recommand the audio-tour , it tells you all about the paintings and there meanings. I do not know much about art... More

The "Seven Works of Mercy" by Caravaggio is a large (about 4m x 3.5m) oil gracing the main altar of this 8 sided chapel. It highlights the good works (misericordia) to which the founders dedicated themselves. Large 16th C. oils are mounted above the remaining side altars. The artworks have been recently restored and are beautiful. The Gallery upstairs has... More

I obviously didn't read the reviews thoroughly: there is an entrance fee even if you only want to see the church. We had only a short while before our other plans so had hoped to just pop in and see the famous Caravaggio in situ. Surprised by the fee and because we had so little time we ended up skipping...

A beautiful gem -- an active church and a museum in one. Worth seeing for the Caravaggio alone (Seven Works of Mercy), but the other paintings and artifacts in the church and museum are also worth the trip.

This place hosts one of the most important painting of the famous painter Caravaggio. But beside this it is worth to visit it because there are many other beautiful things to see. Other painting from great artists and object of the past are well conserved here.

There was a small admission fee to enter this beautiful church, but well worth the price. Sette Opera di Misericordia is amazing and to see the work where it was created !! There are many other artists represented in this beautiful church.

It is hard to believe that this lovely place exists amongst the grime and disfunction of the area. Visited to see the Caravaggio and enjoyed our visit to this small but very interesting place. Well worth a visit if you happen to find yourself in this area.

This attraction took you through how art was affected by the naturalistic style of the Caravaggio. There are a number of pieces from not long after this painting which interpreted this style in different ways, but there are also lots of modern paintings, sculptures and so on from around the world, which were inspired by the painting itself, not just...
