Sant’Andrea della Valle is one of the most monumental churches in Rome; together with the church of Jesus and that of St. Ignatius, it is an architectural image of the counter-reformation. A temple of the order of the Theatines, it was started in honour of St. Andrew the Apostle in 1591, but it decoration went on into the 17th century, giving the building a strong Baroque appearance. The church was probably named after the nearby Palazzo Della Valle. An icon of the Madonna and Child from the late 18th century is preserved inside the church; from an iconographic viewpoint, it is a replica of the Madonna of Santa Maria Maggiore, in which Mary holds the blessing Child I her left arm.
