Santa Maria Maggiore

Practically everyone has heard of the Sistine Chapel, but not everyone would recognise the name of the building in which it resides, the Santa Maria Maggiore, Rome's largest and most treasured church dedicated to the Virgin Mary. Worshippers from all over the globe have made pilgrimages to this blessed Marian shrine for well over fifteen centuries, however, one does not have to be Catholic to appreciate the beauty and atmosphere of this glorious basilica. Every surface of the Santa Maria Maggoire features the precious artwork of dozens of famous Roman sculptors, painters, architects and visionaries.

  • Admire the gorgeous iconic ceiling frescoes, bronze angel statues and ornate alters and bas relief of Rome's famous Sistine Chapel and its equally beautiful sister, the Borghese Chapel.
  • View the breathtaking 18th century façade executed by Rome's master architect Ferdinand Fuga and decorated with amazing mosaics by artist Filippo Rusuti.
  • Browse enlightening exhibits of iconic paintings from master Roman artists like Sodoma and Becafumi, vestments and chalices from former Popes, and scores of other artefacts at the Santa Maria Maggiore Museum.
