Basilica Santa Maria Degli Angeli E Dei Martiri - Review

A church designed by none other than Michelangelo, Santa Maria degli Angeli e dei Martiti dwells over the remains of an ancient bathhouse. The entrance is a giant brick niche from the Baths of Diocletian which was converted by Michelangelo into a church.

Probably the most striking feature of the church is the sundial in the floor which was used to set clocks in Rome for around 150 years.

Within the church, you can visit a small museum with placards briefing about the history of the bath and the church. A side-door allows you to take a peek at the remains of the vast bath complex.

This attraction also featured in Rome itinerary 5 days and Rome trip for 4 days which is worth to visit.

Basilica Santa Maria Degli Angeli E Dei Martiri, Rome Reviews

  • Beautiful basilica of St. Mary at the Republic square. This basilica looks very ordinary from the outside...almost like in ruins...but is gorgeous inside! Don't miss out!

  • Santa Maria degli Angeli e dei Martiri is one of the most fascinating basilicas in Rome. The church facade is unassuming until you realize it is a fragment of the frigidarium, or cold pool room, of the ancient Baths of Diocletian. These baths were the largest in ancient Rome, though this fact is difficult to comprehend because they have been incorporated into streets, buildings and piazzas. Stepping inside the church gives you an idea of their size: the basilica, which was designed by Michelangelo in the 16th century, features a dominant transept, meaning the church extends horizontally rather than vertically – a truly unusual effect, due to the fact that it was built within the original bath structure.

  • Designed by Michael Angelo, this ruin-like looking building exposes some impressive features upon entering. A must see

  • Surely one of the most unusual and surprising churches in Rome. From outside it looks modest and unsightly, but then it opens to the vast space of partly preserved ancient roman baths (renovated into church in 16. century and thus saved from further decaying). You can see four big marble columns holding the middle dome. One can imagine what pleasure was visiting those baths in the roman time.

  • One of my favorite places to visit. It's a magnificent church with a very interesting history (designed by Michaelangel and built using the ruins of the Baths of Diocletian). There's a small museum that explains the history of the church. I fell in love with the meridian line. Unfortunately only one of the light sources has survived the remodels but it still works. In the Winter time the sun hits as much as 15 minutes after noon and in the summer it hits before noon. It hits exactly at noon on the Equinoxes. I posted a picture showing the light hitting the meridian (very exciting!)
