About Arcibasilica Di San Giovanni In Laterano, Rome

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.

  • Very impressive basilica, much less crowded than the Vatican but, though smaller similar in scale. Fun fact the doors of this church are stolen from the curia Julia (Senate building) on the forum romanum.

  • Impressive but they wouldn't let my daughter in due to her shoulders showing... So watch how you dress.

  • One of the most huge and beautiful place in Rome. Beauty both on the outside and inside. The entrance was free of charge but you have to pass security control before getting inside

  • Beautiful! Lots of artwork, artifacts, statues and paintings to see. Free entry, modest dress. We stumbled upon and were very impressed

  • Great history lessons in this place as the former main basilica of Catholicism and the influence of Italian fascism of the 20th century in creating the Vatican state.
