Legend has it that in the midsummer of the 4th century A.D., the Virgin Mary Tomon gave Pope Libero a monastery to show the glory of the Virgin Mary where it snowed. As a result, snow fell on Mount Esquilino the next morning, and the Pope ordered people to build a church there, so the church was also known as the Notre Dame Snow Palace. Today, the church also has activities to sprinkle white rose petals to symbolize the Holy site. It is also the first church named after the Virgin Mary in the world. The current Pope visits the Virgin Mary Hall before and after his visit to China. The church was built in about the fourth century A.D. The dome depicts the coronation of the Virgin Mary. The oil painting depicts the scene of the birth of the Virgin Mary.
Say goodbye to Republican Square and walk to the nearby Notre Dame Cathedral (Notre Dame Snow Cathedral) to continue the tour. Legend has it that in 356 AD, the Pope dreamed of seeing the Virgin Mary, who ordered "to build a church where it snows tonight". Although it was August, the sky unexpectedly snowed, and where it snowed, the only church dedicated to the Virgin Mary in Rome was built. Thirty-six columns in the interior support a huge space, while the structure of horizontal beams supported by two rows of columns (a typical early Christian church building technique) makes the space more solemn and solemn. In the underground space in front of the church, there are large sculptures of the Pope kneeling devoutly to the Virgin Mary. Because it was the last stop and there was plenty of time, we enjoyed it easily in the church. Looking up at the golden mosaic "Coronation of the Virgin Lady" of the 13th century on the dome, looking around at the sculptures, murals, reliefs, windows and flowers. In addition to strolling on the marble floor of the church, we also sit in chairs from time to time, reading travel materials, recalling what we have seen and heard.
The Cathedral of the Virgin Mary, also known as the Cathedral of the Virgin Mary of Maggio, is located near termini and is one of the four super-temples of religion. Legend has it that St. Maria dreamed of building a church in a snowy place for the Pope, and that church was there. On Yan Value, the four super temples are all good, but I prefer Rutland St. John and St. Paul outside the city.
This is one of the four main cathedrals of the Pope in Rome, near the Temini Railway Station. This is the real building gem of Rome, dedicated to the Virgin Mary. The gold-plated ceiling is said to have been made of gold brought back by Columbus from North America, and it is still brilliant after years of washing.
Among all the rectangular churches in Rome, the Notre Dame Hall is the most successful one which combines several different architectural styles. The central hall belongs to the 5th century architecture. The Roman bell tower is a symbol of the Middle Ages. The new mosaic ceiling and algae wells are Renaissance style. The two domes of the church and the back of the magnificent building are Baroque style. The domes on both sides have distinct Baroque features.
It's a cathedral worth seeing. It's so beautiful and shocking! Visitors in shorts are not allowed in.
The church is very close to the Central Railway Station in Rome. It's five minutes'walk. It is one of the four major religious temples in Rome. From the early Christian period to the late Baroque period, the church has undergone many reforms for thousands of years, and the three central pillars have been preserved to this day.
