The 17th century church of Sant' Antonio dei Portoghesi, the national church of Portugal, is the work of three successive architects: Martino Longhi the Younger (1602-60), Carlo Rainaldi (1611-91) and Cristofero Schor.
The church was completed in 1697. Its richly ornate facade is thought to be the work of Martino Longhi.
