Basilica Of Saint Paul Outside The Walls, Rome Reviews - Write a Review

  • +JMJ...Every pilgrimage to Rome included a visit to this visually outstanding, serenity enhancing ancient house of prayer. It is a little distance from Ancient Rome and the other major basilicas, but it was easy for me to get there because the bus stop was right outside my hotel's (Hotel Adriatic) door! After walking around the Basilica, photographing practically every nook and cranny, I would go to the Adoration Chapel for a quiet, prayerful visit. I love my Roman Catholic faith and gave plenty thanks to God for the blessed opportunity to visit the resting place of one of His most faithful follower/servants, St Paul. My prayer for all is that they will allow themselves to take in not only the historical and artful beauty of St Paul Outside the Walls, but will take the time to open Sacred Scripture and read St Paul's conversion story: Acts of the Apostles 9:1-30. Read also Epistle to the Romans, Chapter 1 verses 1 - 7. Great introduction of St Paul to Christians in Rome. These readings along with reading the Gospels, all 4, could be transformative for their eternal well-being.

  • Makes St Peter's look like an overdone glitzy try hard. We arrived during a Sunday mass. Would have converted if I hadn't been dragged out in the nick of time. This is a building with class, style and refinement not just gold. Amazing acoustics. Amazing glazing. Amazing architecture. Free entry, very low key and no crowds. If you don't feel God here you will at least see why some do. If you don't have time for this and the Vatican drop the Vatican.

  • Less visited than the other basilicas, but perhaps the most interesting of the four. Burnt down and rebuilt, it has retained the form of the early basilicas and gives you an idea of what the original St. Peter's would have looked like. Inside the atmosphere is always peaceful thanks to the size and the lack of large numbers of visitors. The portraits of the popes are worth seeing, as is the cloister. Keep your ticket when you leave as you'll need it to get into the recently opened archaeological area outside the bookshop.

  • Massive, amazing, iconic. More romanesque with a touch of a byzantine style. A short walk from the metro.

  • I was surprised at how quiet it was here considering it is one of the 4 major basilicas in Rome. The have a beautiful cloister and small museum for an extra 4 euro, for me it was completely worth it. It was so nice to able to walk around and not be fighting off other tourists and large groups of people.
