Description

Our Lady of the People and the chapel dedicated to Our Lady were built in the People's Square, over the Roman tombs of the Domitii family, by Pope Paschal II in 1099. The legend claims that emperor Nero was buried here and the Pope exhumed his remains and threw them into the Tiber, building the new Church where the Emperor's ashes had been. This was the monastery where Martin Luther stayed during his visit to Rome in 1511. The exterior is famous because Gian Lorenzo Bernini made many changes to its façade, while the interior is known for the Cappella Cerasi that has two canvases, the Conversion of Paul and the Crucifixion of St Peter.
