San Carlo al Corso

< previous > < index > < next >

The ambulatory is behind the sanctuary, where there is a niche behind the altar where a gilded reliquary containing the heart of St Charles is kept. It was donated to the church in 1614 by Cardinal Federico Borromeo, a relative of the saint. Above the niche is a bust of St Charles, and then a large painted banner of the school of Carlo Maratta depicting St Charles Venerating the Madonna and Child.
