basilica santi maria degla angeli e dei martiri

Built in the 16th century in the frigidarium of Diocletian's Baths, much to the delight of the pope who commissioned the meridian-aligned sundial in the space, finding it a fitting triumph over pagan time-keeping. The vaults are pure Michaelangelo masterpieces and the trompe-l'œil is well done too!
