Santa Maria in Aracoeli
Santa Maria in Aracoeli church stands on the site of the Temple of Juno and dates back at least to the 6th century. The church is famous for its ornate gilded ceiling and a very fine series of frescoes by Pinturicchio, dating from the 1480's. The Aracoeli Staircase was completed in 1348 to commemorate the end of the plaque.
