Borromini’s Illusion in Palazzo Spada
This is an example of forced perspective.  The hallway is not getting as far as you think, it’s getting tinier.  Worth seeing just to watch the museum guide walk through and seeing how very small it really is!
Also just wanted to mention, again, how beautiful I think Borromini’s works are
