The Basilica of St Mary Major and the Mosaics of the Esquiline- Virtual Experience 

According to the Legend, the Basilica of St Mary Major was built in the IV century AD after both the Pope and a Noble Roman called Giovanni had a dream about the Virgin Mary asking for a place of worship. O the Morning of August 5th 354 they found a miracle had marked the location on top of one of the Seven Hills: the Esquiline, the top was in fact covered in snow!

But the Esquiline, today covered by late XIX century buildings, hides many other treasures: in the Churches of Santa Pudenziana and Santa Prassede there are Paleocristian and Middle ages mosaics that are themselves well worth a visit!
