Owner description: Spectacular church full of breathtaking statues and paintings. Located near the Termini station in Rome, this church is guaranteed to leave you gasping in admiration.

Walk into this building and you are on the site of the former Baths of Diocletian. As with other churches in Rome this is very ornate.

This church is built into the ruins of ancient Roman baths. The original interior was designed by Michelangelo. Meridians of heavenly bodies are inscribed in the floor and there are representations of the signs of the zodiac also. There was an exhibit about Galileo and his relationship to religion but no apology. There is a small garden and a branch of the National Museum behind the church. It is located on the Piazza della Republica.

The exterior of this church looks more than anything but a church, but when you're inside the beauty can surprise anyone. The church is situated in Piazza della Republica and it's easy accesible by Metro.

The basilica is located within 5 minutes walk, directly opposite Termini Station. The exterior is huge, dull and the entrance is small. But what a surprise when we stepped into it. The interior is beautiful with tall columns, beautiful paintings and sculptures. There is a small museum depicting the history of the basilica and it was free during our visit. Walking out to the backyard, it was a quaint sight with an impressive looking statue. The stained glass dome in the basilica is really beautiful.

The outside is a crumbllng semicircular facade, and you expect the inside to be unassuming, but WOW 1 this is a spectacular working church, originally ancient Roman Baths that were converted, with a splendid dome designed by Michaelangelo. Near the train station, so go if u are nearby
