The exterior is not very impressing, but you can see one unique thing about this church - the rose windows show that this is a Gothic church, the only Medieval church in this style in Rome. The facade was added in 1453, and is attributed to Meo del Caprina. It was paid for by the Orsini family.
What you will certainly notice is the curious statue of an elephant carrying a small Egyptian obelisk. The elephant was probably made by Bernini, and the obelisk, dating from the 6th century BC, was found in the ruins of the temple of Isis and Serapis. The obelisk was decicated to Pharaoh Ofra, who is mentioned in the Bible (Jeremiah 44.30).
Church is in the Gothic style - notice that it has pointed arches rather than the rounded ones commonly found in Rome. The impression was partially destroyed by Carlo Maderno, who added Baroque elements to the 13th century nave.
