The architecture and outstanding features of this place you should not miss:

Santa Maria in Via Maggiore's original architectural design blends traditional Roman cultural features with a classic color. Santa Maria Maggiore represented the inner-city Romans as well as the future Christians. Although the builders planned for a large area, they constructed Santa Maria Maggiore accordingly. The design of the basilica is a typical design for this time in Rome: "a high and wide navel; an aisle on either side; and a semicircular dome at the end of the nave."

The church was designed by the famous Italian architect, Andrea Palladio. Completed in 1610, the church's design is a classic example of Renaissance architecture with a two-story marble facade and tall, symmetrical pillars. Inside, light pours through windows to illuminate high arches and simply laid out white and maroon tiles. The windows are modeled after the style that appears in many Roman baths.
