Truly a glorious and beautiful place to visit. From the gold of the facade and entrance mural. To the newly restored ceiling of the main Sanctuary. To the interior mural behind thr High Altar. It is a work of art. Come to see it and feel it. Then breathe it in. A holy place worthy to be one of the 4 Papal Churches of Rome. God bless.
Iconic landmark outside the Roman city walls. Beautiful basilica full of history and art. Recently restored with a new archaeological site of the old paleochristian basilica. Free entrance to the basilica with easy access for wheelchairs. Public toilets and big bar for breakfast and lunch just outside the basilica but always inside the premises. Worth the visit.
Super stunning cathedral. Quite elaborate, but also quite serene. The amount of detail & gold work that's been used throughout is hard to fathom.
St. Paul’s Outside the Walls is one of the four highest ranking churches in the Catholic hierarchy. This basilica is not similar to other basilicas in Rome. It's more laconic/simple in good way. It was originally erected by Roman Emperor Constantine I, supposedly over the grave of Saint Paul himself. There you may see the portraits of all Popes on the walls. According to a local legend the pope whose face graces that last space in the row will in fact be the final pope as the Second Coming begins.
Magnificent Basilica, less famous than Still Peter's but definitely worth it. You can reach it easily by metro. The gold plated frontage will be best appreciated in the sunlight. The best is that it's not so crowded.
