Basilica Santa Paul

Recommendations

Erected during the fourth century AD, the Basilica of St. Paul Outside the Walls (Basilica di San Paolo Fuori le Mura) is one of the four major basilicas of Rome, and the second largest after St. Peter's Basilica. It was founded on the burial ground of St. Paul.

Notes from Basilica Santa Paul:
In 313 the Emperor Constantine promulgated the Edict of Milan, with which he put an end to the persecutions against Christians and gave them freedom of worship, favoring the construction of places of prayer. Therefore, the place of the martyrdom of St. Paul, a destination of uninterrupted pilgrimages since the first century, was monumentalized with the creation of a small basilica, of which only the curve of the apse is preserved. It must have been a small building probably with three naves, which housed the tomb of Paul, adorned with a golden cross, near the apse.
