In a busy bit of Rome. This church is a sanctuary. Also interesting withers acknowledgement of science. The meridian (?) line where the sunlight shows the sun's position (solstice to solstice) and pendulums was great. Eldest daughter loves the cherubs!

Rome is full of churches. So why is this one so special? Many reasons. It was built in the ruins of a roman bath. It was designed by Michelangelo. It has a gorgeous stained glass dome in the entryway made to look like the heavens. It has a giant pendulum. It has a solar calendar built into the floor (the Meridian) with exquisite astrological art. There's a big statue of Galileo in the back. (Oh, and there's beautiful artwork too). For a science geek like me, it was amazing. It wasn't crowded, either.

This church is fascinating for two reasons, firstly it was built on the ruins of Diocletian's Roman Baths; secondly it was designed by Michelangelo. Although the church is huge, it only occupies the central hall of the Roman Baths (the frigidarium - cold plunge room). This is the only place in the city that provides such a clear idea of just how vast were public baths in ancient Rome. As well as the thought provoking contrast between the ancient and medieval buildings, the church is a delight in its style, architecture and decoration.

Be surprised by what lies behind the exterior and come inside to this treasure of history, art, astronomy, science and humanity. You will be happy to spend time within these remarkable walls of time.
