St Aloysius Chapel
The St. Aloysius Chapel in Mangalore was built in 1880 and its interiors painted by the Italian Jesuit Antonio Moscheni in 1899. It is an architectural marvel that could stand comparison with the chapels of Rome. What makes this chapel unique compared to the other chapels in the country is the beautiful paintings that cover virtually every inch of the walls. The central row of paintings on the ceiling depicts the life of Aloysius Gonzaga to whom the College and Chapel is dedicated. The side wings have the paintings on life of Christ. The inner walls of the chapel have portraits of Jesuit saints and martyrs. The significance of the paintings is its 3D look from various angles. The whole chapel looks like a sculpture work through paintings. It is a tourist attraction in Mangalore. It is considered as one of its kind in the whole of South India
