Famous as the very first church of the Christendom, Basilica of San Giovanni in Laterno lies in the city of Rome but belongs to Vatican City and enjoys the privileges of extra-territoriality. It was commissioned in 324 AD by Emperor Constantine. Until late 14th century, the church was the prime place of worship for the Pope.

Refurbished many times, the statues of Christ and St. John the Baptist, St John the Evangelist and the 12 Apostles are worth observing. The bronze doors, the facade and the holy door add a distinct hue to the structure. Plan a trip to Rome to see the mosaic floor, the central nave and the cloister exhibit some beautiful art works worth looking at!

Today, it serves as the official cathedral of Rome and the pope’s seat as the Bishop of the city.
