Photos: Basilica of S. Maria Maggiore - I

Outside, baroque facade.

Gorgeous mosaics in the loggia

Reliquary in the confessio beneath the high altar, containing the remains of the Holy Crib.

Dome of the Sistine Chapel (no, not the one in the Vatican). This one was commissioned by Pope Sixtus V, designed by Domenico Fontana.
