There are seven altars with beautiful paintings and statues. The high altar (above) has a statue of St. Marinus sculptured by Tadolini. An urn there contains the relics of St. Marinus.

This basilica was beautiful as it lacked color. The plain color scheme was actually amazing, especially the ceiling.
