Walking by this church is easy. The brick facade is uninteresting. I once decided to walk through the doors and to see the marble interior and solar clock impressed me. In Italy and in Rome learn to look because what may look ordinary from a distance is beautiful from the interior.

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.

Roma e le sue chiese, così numerosi, che se foste sul Pincio e guardaste il panorama , vedreste subito il loro numero, se non eccessivo, almeno riempitivo perché il cielo sarebbe pieno di croci.
Questa è una chiesa particolare, si trova infatti all'interno di un'ala delle terme di Diocleziano e si trova appena fuori dalla stazione termini, nella via che porta a Piazza della Repubblica. Tra le tante cose che potrete ammirare c'è una meridiana e la tomba di Armando Diaz.
