Effectively it's a huge empty rectangular building. Apart from sheer size nothing special to look at from decorations or architecture perspective.

When we were inside they were having construction going on, so there was nothing much to see, although the view from the inside is quite impresssive

Unfortunately we could not enter due to building activities, but just standing outside in front this massive building is impressive. A giant built in roman times. How did they do it?

Wow. also known as Konstantin Basilika. I don't know where the reviewer got the information about the total destruction... I don't find any evidence of that anywhere. The roof is replica and the plaster has been stripped away as well as some towers that were added to supplement the vanity of a medieval archbishop, but the walls are original -... More

Unfortunately there was a lot of building work going on when we visited so many of the most interesting information panels were not accessible however our friends gave us plenty of information. This is a simple building with an intersting and varied history but come in just to see the amazing Roman bricks that have held ths place up for... More

As you enter this church, you are immediately struck by the enormity of the open internal space. I found myself looking up in bewilderment, asking "how did they do it"? Although they are currently renovating to add a pipe organ, the church is open and there are many posters explaining its history. It's worth a stop to look up and... More

This church is undergoing interior repair and refinement. The explanatory displays gave evidence that the congregation understood its error in standing by Hitler in WWII and wanted to become more inclusive and forgiving haven for Christians.

From what we were told this structure was rebuilt except 1 standing wall. The ceiling is extremely high and the building itself is huge. Holes in wall for heat to enter like most of the other structures had. This is another location to be done with a tour guide to get some of the history.

This building is simply huge. The ceiling unsupported by any columns seems an impossible accomplishment. Despite being damaged and rebuilt over the centuries this vast Roman building still carries a sense of awe from those distant times. There are good informative displays in English on the walls explaining the history of the building. Don't miss this impressive piece of architecture.... More

The visit was a complete waste of time, especially after having to deal with the rude attendant. The place was completely rebuilt due to the damage from wars, so about the only neat part about the visit is seeing the splendor of the super high wooden ceiling. When we visited, there was a Sunday service going on. Because we were... More
