Other churches given the rebuild / mosaic treatment by this great builder pope were Santa Maria in Domnica on the Celean Hill, and Santa Cecilia in Trastevere. The Basilica on the Esquiline Hill is only a few minutes walk from our stand out favourite Major Basilica - Santa Maria Maggiore, with the church named after Pudenziana, Prassede's sister, at the bottom of the hill. Most visitors enter through the undistinguished north-east side door, but if it is a nice day it's worth walking round and coming up through the peaceful garden which frames the main facade (left).
