"The Holy Door" Top 5 Page for this destination St. Peter's Basilica Tip by Diana75
St. Peter's Basilica, Vatican City: 162 reviews and 371 photos
The Holy Door or the Saint Door stands on the right side of the porch.
This door is officially opened by the Holy Father according to a special rite, only on the jubilees occasion.
The last time it was opened was for the Great Jubilee of 2000 and it stayed opened from the Christmas Day of 1999 until the end of 2000.
In 2000 I was lucky to pass through it on two occassions: during my mission as volunteer in April and during the World Your Day celebrations taking place in August.
