Basilica di Santa Maria Maggiore

From the roof garden of the Hotel Doria, you can enjoy a suggestive view of the beautiful Basilica di Santa Maria Maggiore, only 50 metres away.

The Basilica is the most important church dedicated to the Madonna in Rome, and holds many works of art inside, including the oldest nativity scene made with statues, with the three wise men and partial figures of the donkey and the ox carved in stone.

The Basilica di Santa Maria Maggiore was built around 432 AD by Pope Liberius. The legend narrates that the Madonna indicated the place where the church was to build with a heavy snowfall in August (hence the church's alternative name of Saint Mary of the Snow).

On 5 August every year, the famous "snowfall on the square" is held, which guests of the Hotel Doria are welcome to attend.
