“No Catholic church can be honoured with the title of "basilica" unless by apostolic grant or from immemorial custom.[19] St. Mary Major is one of the only four that hold the title of "major basilica". Under the high altar of the basilica is the Crypt of the Nativity or Bethlehem Crypt, with a crystal reliquary designed by Giuseppe Valadier said to contain wood from the Holy Crib of the nativity of Jesus Christ”

“The absolute highlight of the route through the Vatican museums is a visit to the Sistine Chapel (Capella Sistina). The name is derived from the founder of the chapel, pope Sixtus IV. The impressive ceiling of this 15th-century Sistine Chapel was painted in the 16th century by Michelangelo. It portrays the story of creation, the great flood and other scenes. The side walls are equally beautiful with paintings of the life of Jesus made by Ghirlandaio, Botticelli, Perugino, Pinturicchio and others. The wall behind the alter shows Michelangelo's painting of the ‘Last Judgement’. The Sistine Chapel is mostly known for being the space where the cardinals meet for conclave when electing a new pope. When a new pope is being elected, smoke comes from the chapel's chimney twice a day. White smoke means a new pope has been elected, while black smoke means the cardinals were not yet successful in their mission. ”

“The church’s exterior is notable for the stunning golden mosaics on its facade and for its bell tower, which dates from the twelfth century. Once inside, the building is divided into three naves by a score of columns from the Baths of Caracalla. Despite the beautiful altarpieces and other decorative elements that fill the church, visitors’ eyes fixate particularly on the golden mosaic located in the apse. To the left of the High Altar you can visit the Baroque-style Chapel of Altemps, which holds the Madonna della Clemenza, a life-size image of the Virgin.”

“The Mouth of Truth (Italian: Bocca della Verità [ˈbokka della veriˈta]) is a marble mask in Rome, Italy, which stands against the left wall of the portico of the Santa Maria in Cosmedin church, at the Piazza della Bocca della Verità, the site of the ancient Forum Boarium (the ancient cattle market). It attracts visitors who audaciously stick their hand in the mouth. The massive marble mask weighs about 1300 kg and probably depicts the face of the sea titan god Oceanus. The eyes, nostrils and mouth are open. Historians aren't quite certain what the original purpose of the disc was. It was possibly used as a drain cover in the nearby Temple of Hercules Victor, which had an oculus—a round open space in the middle of the roof, similar to that of the Pantheon. Hence, it could rain inside. It is also thought that cattle merchants used it to drain the blood of cattle sacrificed to the god Hercules. In the thirteenth century the disc was probably removed from the temple and placed against the wall of the Santa Maria in Cosmedin. In the seventeenth century it eventually moved to its current location inside the portico of the church. ”

The stairs were, reputedly, brought to Rome by St. Helena, mother of Costantine the Great, in the fourth century. For centuries, the Scala Santa has attracted Christian pilgrims who wish to honor the Passion of Jesus.”

“The church that we see today was built by St. Paschal I (817-824). The interior has three naves. The church, which can be admired for the splendid floor in the Cosmati style, preserves two masterpieces of the Roman Middle Ages: the mosaics of the triumphal arch of the apse and the Chapel of San Zenone. The Chapel of San Zenone was constructed by Paschal I as a mausoleum for his mother Theodora. Located in the right nave of the church, in form of Greek cross, its vault is completely covered with gold mosaics. It is no wonder that it has been called the "Garden of Paradise": it is an area full of enchantment, the most exquisite mosaic chapel that exists in Rome whose architecture refers to the chapels of Ravenna.”
