The Choir's Chapel
The Cappella del Coro (Chapel of the Choir) may be accessed from the left-hand nave entering the Basilica through the main door and following the side nave approximately half-way through the Basilica.
The sumptuous Chapel of the Choir decorated with gilded stuccoes, is at the point where Michaelangelo's Renaissance design ends and Domenico Fontana's Baroque extension begins.
The paiting of the Blessed Virgin behind the altar has a crown that was added in 1904, on the 50th anniversary of the definition of the Immaculate Conception.
