Santa Maria degli Angeli ( shorter name for the original Santa Maria degli Angeli e dei Martiri or the Church of St. Mary of the Angels and the Martyrs), is a church in Rome that is one of the most unique Renaissance churches of our time. The church was actually designed by the legendary Michelangelo. The church was constructed within the boundaries of the Roman Walls of the Baths of Diocletian.
The church is devoted to the Virgin Mary, to the angels as well as the Christian Slaves who died while they were involved in the construction of the baths. Similar to many churches in Rome, the church has a huge collection of art and artifacts, as well as a number of sacred relics. The church is also home to a number of monumental tombs.
