BASILICA OF SANTA MARIA MAGGIORE
Rome

The Interior

The Paolina Chapel
After walking through the main aisle at the height of the Confession, we can cross to the right wing ( facing to the main door) of the transept and the symmetrical counterpart to the Sistine Chapel, The Paolina Chapel, named after the POpe Paul V, who is buried there. It was built by the architect Flaminio Ponzio, Pope Paul V called on Moderno to build the facade pf St. Peter's in the Vatican City, upon which the name of the Pontiff stands out in the letters, in the gigantic dedicatory inscription.
