Basilica of Mary Queen of Martyrs. In the portico is an inscription reproducing the notice that Pope Urban VIII (of the Barberini family) promulgated to justify stripping the bronze from the Pantheon: officially for the baldacchino in St. Peter’s, but in reality it was probably for the cannons of Castel Sant’Angelo.
