Description

The Church Our Lady of the Angels was built on the ruins of the "Diocletian's baths" by orders of Pope Pius IV (1559-1565). A Sicilian priest, Fr. Antonio Lo Duca, had a vision of an angel on the ruins. The exterior is unique for a Church, as the outer walls of the Diocletian's baths are partially preserved. The construction of the Church Our Lady of the Angels was commissioned to Michelangelo, when he was 86 years old. He drew up the design and was inspired to leave the foundation of the Rectangular Roman Baths. Inside is kept a famous sundial inaugurated by Pope Clement XI on October 6, 1702.
