This was only a few blocks from our lodging and kind of stands out so we walked over, up the steep steps (the Guisti complex is back up way steeper streets). This was almost a scared mission. Spectacular works of art in expression of a faith is just worthy, period.

Impressing steps lead you to the main entrance if you come from Piazza Unita or the Teatro Romano. It's also close to the Arco di Riccardo, and can be on your way up to the castle.
Santuario Santa Maria Maggiore is a richly decorated church, a classic example of the baroque architecture. There are brochures inside in several languages so you can explore the church with guideline.
