Three Papal Basilicas: St. John Lateran, St. Mary Mayor and St. Paul
Discovering the Papal Basilicas: St. John Lateran, St Mary Mayor and St. Paul. Faith, history and beauty.
Because of their religious, historical and artistic value St Mary Mayor, St. Paul Outside the Walls and St. John Lateran are called Papal Basilicas as much as St. Peter. Real pillars of faith and Church history they tell us about Rome as a Christian capital. Their dimension will impress you, their beauty, their architecture and the richness of their art treasures will fascinate you. You will breathe their antiquity prestige. The three Basilicas were built in different areas of Rome. St. Paul was in an isolated area outside the defensive walls, St. John was built in the outskirts of town, while St Mary Mayor right in city centre. St Mary Mayor, the biggest Roman church consecrated to Mary, has beautiful mosaics (5th c. B.C.); St. John Lateran is the oldest basilica in Rome (beginning 4th c. B.C.) and the seat of Rome’s archbishops; St. Paul Outside the Walls was built to remember St. Paul work of evangelization (4th c. B.C.).
