They have an awesome chapel, and their archives are pretty cool too. Last summer I got to see a letter that was written in St. Aloysius's own hand when I was at the archives. Back in the gardens of the Rome JesRes their is a giant statue of the Sacred Heart. During Pius XII reign there was a tree that grew in front of it. At the begining of his pontificate he could see the statue from his Residence, but by the end it was obscured. Reportedly he had mentioned off hand to the Jesuit Superior General at one point that he could tell he had been Pope for a long time, because the tree had grown so much it obscured the statue. By that afternoon the Superior General had the tree cut down.
