Quiet and calm church is better known for "mouth of truth" than for its architecture, but it deserves special attention.
The Basilica of Saint Mary in Cosmedin, Rome
The Basilica of Saint Mary in Cosmedin is modest and not similar to other churches in Rome place where one can hide from the heat in cool and silent hall.

The church is better known for its "mouth of truth", but there is something to see in church too. The first noticeable amazing symbiosis of architectural styles of the 7th and 12th centuries, an amazing mosaic floor, Middle Ages jewels.

You can come here at lunchtime to have a little sit down in the cool and enjoy the pleasant silence. Free entrance.
