"Santa Maria sopra Minerva" Basilica Santa Maria Sopra Minerva Tip by Packerman

  Colonel Hardy?
by Packerman

This church was founded in the 8C. Six plaques on the right mark the heights reached by the flood waters of the Tiber between 1598 and 1870. I was impressed with the chancel and the tombs in the Gothic style dating from the 15C. The Carafa chapel has a finely carved marble altar rail.

Directions: southeast of the Pantheon
