The St John Lateran Basilica is the most important Christian basilica in the world.

Is also the oldest having been built starting from the IV century in the area once called Horti Laterani” an ancient area owned by the Laterani family.

It is one of the 4 papal basilicas and for its beauty, as well as for its historical importance, it is among the most visited Christian places of worship in the world.

In the IV century, the Emperor Constantine expropriated the Laterani family from their lands in order to build the first Roman basilica here.

Despite over the years, the Church suffered the consequences of an earthquake and fires and underwent various reconstruction interventions.

Today it retains its original appearance, as well as an excellent XIII century cloister and an ancient baptistery significantly restored.

St John Lateran Basilica has played an important role in the course of history, since until 1870 all the popes obtained their prestigious position here.

Currently, the Basilica has not lost the importance it had in the past, given that the Pope, as Bishop of Rome, celebrates Holy Thursday liturgies within it.

Considered one of Borromini‘s masterpieces, this splendid cathedral is located on the Celio Hill and is undoubtedly an essential destination for tourists and pilgrims from all over the world.

Touring St John Lateran Basilica

It is defined the Mater et Caput of all the churches of Rome and of the world.

Here the Baptistery was built, for a long time the only place where the faithful could be baptized.

In its heart was the Patriarch, the seat of the Popes until the early 1300s.

Upon returning from exile in Avignon, the residence of the Popes then moved to the Vatican.

Constantine‘s mother brought the Praetorium Stairway here from Jerusalem, which Jesus walked through during his trial.

In one of its chapels, the Sancta Sanctorum, the most sacred relics of Christianity were kept.

With the transformations of the following centuries and, in particular those of the mid XVII century, the Basilica assumed its present form and for its beauty it was called Aurea, that is, made of gold.

The interior, with five naves, retains very little of the early Christian basilica.

The interventions of Borromini introduced radical changes in the ancient medieval structure.

The Presbytery and the Apse are a remake of the time of Leo XIII executed, repeating the ancient forms, by Francesco Vespignani based on a design by his father Virginio.

The mosaic of Jacopo Turriti of the Apse half dome was moved from the old apse and restored.

It is the most precious and venerable mosaic in Rome.
