Basilica di Santa Maria Maggiore, Rome, Italy
The plot of the Digital earth near one of the most-known churches of Rome. She is among four papal basilicas and directly submits to Vatican. For this reason in her the so-called "Sacred door" which is solemnly opened only once in 25 years is arranged. This day especially magnificent anniversary service is held, and the temple together with the neighboring areas and streets fills an improbable great number of pilgrims from around the world.
But also in usual days Santa Maria Maggiore is never empty. This not only one of the most sacred places of the Eternal city, but also magnificent historical monument. It is nearly only church which almost entirely kept architecture of the beginning of the 5th century. Also the magnificent mosaics relating even by the time of construction of the temple reached our days. The ceiling is covered with gold which was brought from America by Columbus's ships, and the 75th meter bell tower — the highest in Rome.
In front of basilica, on the cozy square the fountain and the antique column postponed here from the Roman Forum was located. Usually under it numerous tourists have a rest and locals make appointments.
