Fine old buildings, a beautiful church and three stunning fountains embellish Navona square. The Church of Saint Agnese in Agone was commissioned by Pope Innocent X, of the Pamphili family, whose funerary monument is housed within the church. It was to be a sort of personal chapel annexed to the Pamphili residence in Piazza Navona.
The first designs, by Girolamo Rainaldi in 1652, were for a Baroque church. Between 1653 and 1657 works continued under the direction of Francesco Borromini. He partly changed the original design, by increasing the distance between the two side towers and introducing a concave volume in the centre for the dome to stand out even more. The construction was completed by Carlo Rainaldi, son of Girolamo, in 1672.
