Basilica Santa Maria degli Angeli e dei Martiri, Rome: 19 reviews and 70 photos
This was the very first church we saw when we arrived in Rome. I didn't think much of the outside of the church but upon entering it was so impressive and beautiful. I could not believe the enormity of it's size. They have this amazingly, large organ that I thought was unbelievable.
Tidbits of information:
The church was designed by Michelangelo and some later construction was also done. Pope Clement XI comissioned Francesco Bianchini to build a meridian line (like a sundial) because he wanted to check the accuracy of the Gregorian Calendar to predict exactly when Easter would be.
Address: Piazza della Repubblica, Roma, Italy 00185
Directions: You can't miss it if you exit the metro station exit Repubblica Teatro dell 'Opera.
