Basilica da Santa Maria in Aracoeli, Italy

To get to the entrance of this church in Rome, there are 124 steps up to a fairly plain entrance. The inside, however, is anything but plain. Interestingly, the coat of arms with three bees is of the Barberini family whose family members include 17th century Pope Urban VIII and whose lineage still exists in nobility today.
