Santa Maria Antiqua, Rome

Imagine in 1900 stuck between all the Roman buildings by all the emperors, they discovered a church covered from floor to ceiling with frescoes. Though not done at the same time, one can see the changing in styles. Its been recently restored and opened to the public. It is inside the Roman Forum complex, just next to it at the far end. It is so spectacular. I came to Rome just to see it. Well, not really, I'm heading to Norcia tomorrow for another spectacular sight.
