Santa Maria Maggiore
The Basilica of Santa Maria Maggiore, located on the top of the Esquiline Hill, is one of the four patriarchal Basilicas of Rome and is the only one that has preserved the early Christian structures. A well-known tradition says that it was the Virgin who indicated and inspired the construction of her home on the Esquiline. Appearing in a dream to Pope Liberius, she asked for the construction of a church in her honor, in a place that she herself would have miraculously indicated. On the morning of August 5, the Esquiline Hill appeared covered by snow. The basilica represents an absolute masterpiece of early Christian and Baroque art and architecture which will leave you speechless with the beauty of its mosaics, frescoes and sculptures.

Tip: from the Palazzo della Stamperia it is possible to admire a view from above on the fountain, generally the entrance is free.
