The basilica is a beautiful place to visit and does not take long to walk around in. Perhaps half an hour maximum. If you’re near by, it’s definitely worth a visit. There are many basilicas and they all look very similar

The basilica is located on one side of Piazza della Repubblica. It does not have a glamours or impressive facade and may be easily missed. It was built in the 16th century on the ruins of an ancient Roman Bath, following a design by Michelangelo,...More

Hidden in ancient terms, this last Roman work of Michael Angelo who was 86 at the time, is astonishing on the inside, while not so on the outside. Located near the Rome train station, opposite the Piazza della Republica, it is one of the many...More

The star sign clock is one of it's kind and still in use when there is doubt about the correct date for Easter. Refurbished by Micheangelo it is a must see even when the entrance is hiding the beautiful inside. The guard is very helpful...More

This beautiful basilica shows its true beauty after you step in. The entrance is rather "boring" compared to the interior. Inside you will find a wonderful dome with light penetrating through its center. Many statues, columns, altars and a beautiful marble floor wherever you look....More

This church was constructed ~1564 and is enclosed in the frigidarium of the Roman Baths of Diocletian. The basilica is dedicated to the Christian martyrs. It has a great vaulted transept which emphasized the scale of the Roman constructions. In the 18th century a meridian...More

From the outside this basilica gives nothing away. Inside it is stunning, compares well with other churches that get better advertising! Beautiful painting, alter and a wonderful sounding. organ
