This basilica, Santa Maria in Trastevere, is the oldest church in Rome, dedicated to Mother Mary.
The oldest remains are from the 3rd century. The beautiful gilded mosaic is from the 13th century and the artist´s name is Pietro Cavallini.
Do visit this church if you have a chance, it´s very beautiful!

I am a nature lover and an amateur photographer.
Nature is my main inspiration.Snow and ice, birds and water keep attracting my eye. So do trees amd flowers.
I am also interested in myth and history, especially the history of women, the `herstory´. I love to travel and to visit archeological sites and beautiful landscapes.
I use a compact camera, Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ28
