At the Stade de France, the Bataclan, in the cafes and restaurants of Paris... on Friday 13th November, terrorists killed and wounded many innocent people. And in doing so, they also aimed also to kill these places that we love, places which represent culture and a spirit of sharing.
We at WorldEventListings share the grief of the friends and families of the victims of the terrorist attacks of 13th November 2015. And we offer our unconditional support to all the cultural venues affected.
Our raison d'être has always been to share cultural information with as many people as possible. We will continue. We will win. Their failure is only a matter of time.

Description

An awe-inspiring church.

The first Romanesque church to have been dedicated to the Virgin Mary, the Basilica of Santa Maria Maggiore was built after the Council of Ephesus in 431, under Pope Sisto III. Built on the site of the "miracle of the snow", the Basilica of Santa Maria Maggiore mixes the styles of different eras: Roman, Renaissance and Baroque.

Inside the Basilica of Santa Maria Maggiore, visitors will be overcome with wonder. The "cosmatechi" mosaic floor leads you to many treasures: the Cesi Chapel, the statue of the Regina Pacis, the Cappella Sforza, the tomb of Bernini, the nativity scene and most notably the Borghese Chapel and the Sistine Chapel.
