Is Santa Maria Maggiore closed?

Hi!

Passed today in front of Santa Maria Maggiore, and there are metal fences around the Basilica. Is it closed to the public, or is there another entry?

Many Thanks

Were the fences around the front entrance or the back with the apse and step like ledges. Last time we were there that back section had fences but the front , up the hill where the doors are, was open.

The fences ared there to prevent people from getting drunk on the church's steps. The basilica itself is open.
