Basilica di Santa Maria Maggiore – Interior (11 Photos)

Some interior shots from the beautiful Basilica di Santa Maria Maggiore. I’d put it up against the Sistine Chapel any day. Rome, Italy, September 2016

Main Entrance to Santa Maria Maggiore (Major Basilica of Saint Mary). Women whom volunteers deem immodest? will be given a covering. My wife was given one presumably because she has pretty legs, as she was hardly immodest. Sexist, but it is a church at which mass was ongoing during this visit.

The red cloaks in the distance are priestly types performing mass. Don’t look, because I wasn’t allowed to photograph it.
