Angels and Demons – Rome – 5

The action in Angels and Demons then moves to Piazza Barberini, with its famous Triton Fountain by Bernini. The novel places the church of Santa Maria della Vittoria in this square, but it is actually several blocks away. Dan Brown has relocated the church for convenience.

Santa Maria della Vittoria is famous for Bernini’s sculpture of the Ecstasy of Saint Teresa which features in the novel.
