I enter this church and for a long while the beauty of interiors takes my breath away.

Basilica of S. Maria Maggiore is one of two churches situated by Piazza Duomo. It dates back to XII century but the interior is mostly baroque.

The number of details (paintings and sculptures) on the ceilings and walls is countless. I try to absorb it but I fail. I feel so overhelmed and enchanted!

A guide told me later that it’s not possible to name just one major painter. There were a couple of them and their works are now all mixed.
