Very interesting building, that looks like part of the ruins until you go inside! It is very big and stunningly beautiful! The Meridian line is very interesting as well here. One of our favorite churches in Rome!

The most beautiful Basilica. From the outside you can not imagine what the inside looks like. This is a must see!
