Michelangelo designed this church on the remains of the Baths of Diocletian at the request of Pope Pius IV in 1561. You will be amazed at the size of the interior when you enter. Take time to study the meridian line and roam into the back rooms to view the history of the baths and building of the church. There is so much to see here and it's such a calm respite from the crowds at many of the other basilicas in Rome.
