Churches are one of the main attractions and one of the must do things in Rome! In the city where Christianity began many centuries ago, it is quite normal to have hundreds of them. You may wonder if Italians are so Catholic to go every Sunday to attend mass, and while we are traditionally Christian, not of all us go to church on a weekly basis. But we do go at least once a year, at Christmas.
Throughout history, the building of those religious temples became a propagandistic way to show off the popes’ power. And it is in these beautiful buildings where you will find hidden treasures.
