The Four Papal Basilicas of Rome

Basilica di San Paolo Fuori le Mura


A Must See in Rome: San Paolo Fuori Le Mura, one of four papal basilicas, where each of the popes dating back to Saint Peter is awarded a circular mosaic portrait around the internal walls of the basilica.

Holy Stairs revealed


After three centuries, the wooden planks that covered the Scala Sancta in the Archbasilica of St. John Lateran have been removed, unveiling the Holy Stairs that Jesus climbed.
