Santa Maria in Traspontina

Remember that street that I said it leads to the Vatican? In this street, on the right side, there is a beautiful church - they are all beautiful. It's called Santa Maria in Traspontina.
Click on the title and you will go to the page on wikipedia that tell about that.

The Papal Altar and the baldachin. It's amazing, its beauty and grandiouseness!
Only the Pope can celebrate Mass there and is on top of the tomb of St. Peter, the first Pope.
