Michelangelo Makeover

Built in the frigidarium of the Baths of Diocletian (which is located in the Piazza della Repubblica), Santa Maria degli Angeli e dei Martiri offers its visitors a host of experiences unique to the other cathedrals in Rome.

On top of being built over ancient Roman baths, it was also Pope Pius IV’s personal monument (and houses his tomb) and was worked on by Michaelangelo from 1563-1564 while he adapteda section of the baths to enclose the church. So if you’re an art history buff or just looking for some of the lesser-known cathedrals in Rome, head into Santa Maria degli Angeli e dei Martiri and see the layers of its history.
