Michelangelo's vhurch

A very interesting church, designed by Michelangelo when he was 86 years old. Located in Terme di Diocleziano. Inside it looks very majestic.

Basilica used to be part of Baths of Dioclecian and thats why outside is really humble. As I understand Michelangelo made a basilica out of ruins of baths. It is also his statue inside in the garden. There is also interesting sun clock on the floor of basilica as a part of technical history.

We spotted the basilica's humble facade on our way to the metro and decided we'd drop in. What an unexpected and amazing surprise we got when we walked through the doors! I promptly googled this basilica and found that it was designed and built by Michaelangelo inside the ruins of an ancient Roman bath. Well worth a visit.

The humble exterior of small brickwork hides a truly magnificent basilica on the inside. The contributions from Michelangelo and Vanvitelli are stunning. The Meridian Line developed by Bianchini is first class

We had heard about this church, with it's "hole in the ceiling" which acts as a sundial and investigated further. In its own right, it is a beautiful church designed by Michelangelo, but the meridien line makes it a bit special. It is very close to Termini station and definitely worth paying a visit if you're in the area.

A lovely old Church, as in Rome many things just appear to you, while walking elsewhere. When you find the doors to an old church open walk in

Amazing huge basilica with ruins from many centuries. Very easy access and plenty space to look around. The organ is amazing only to see it and must be great to hear!

Staying in Esquilino

Neighbourhood Profile
Esquilino
Old school vibe from the very beginning is the only way to describe the Esquilino neighbourhood. The Esquilino takes pride in being one of the oldest areas in Rome for its key location on one of the city’s famous seven hills. From an ancient neighbourhood to its modern incarnation as a multicultural hub, Esquilino always has something going on—polyglot vendors debate street artists while kids play pick-up basketball games. Look around you: this area isn’t like the historic centre. Liberty architecture, large piazzas, and long boulevards mix with archaic arches, secret side alleys, and beautiful churches like Santa Maria Maggiore.
