"S.Maria in Trastevere church" Basilica Santa Maria in Trastevere Tip by Julius_Caesar

 
 

Probably the first official Christian place of worship to be built in Rome, this church became the focus of devotion to the Virgin Mary. Today’s church is largely a 12th century building, remarkable for its mosaics, in particular those by Pietro Cavallini.
