“The charming oval church of S. Andrea al Quirinale is exquisitely decorated with marbles and stucco work. Designed in 1658, it took twelve years to finish. The statue of St. Andrew above the main altar, which seems to be soaring to heaven on a cloud, is by Bernini’s assistant, Raggi. While work on this church was in progress the magnificent Baroque church of S. Andrea della Valle was being completed in Corso Vittorio Emanuele. Maderno, Rainaldi and Fontana all contributed to the design of the façade.”
