    Step through the unassuming entrance to this amazing church located in a building that used to house Roman baths. You will be greeted by a grand dome topped with an incredible stained glass image of the solar system. Inside, you can admire the old meridian which, until the mid 1800s, was used to set the clocks in Rome.

    The Basilica of St. Mary of the Angels and the Martyrs, is a lovely church in regular use by the locals, located on the Piazza della Republica, just a short distance from Termini station. We spent over an hour here just listening to the choir practice.

    Parts of the ruined Baths of Diocletian provided the building material and setting for this church, constructed by Michelangelo in 1563. An exhibition in the sacristy gives a detailed account of Michelangelo's original design.
