Basilica San Giovanni in Laterano, Rome: 60 reviews and 142 photos
San Giovanni in Laterano is the cathedral of Rome, founded by Constantine during the IV century. It was destroyed and rebuilt many times. The present Basilica was built in the XII century.
Alessandro Galilei built the façade in 1735.
The Holy Door, like in St. Peter's basilica, is open only in the jubilee years.
In the cathedral we have the relics of the remains of San Pietro's and San Paolo's skulls.
Under the tabernacle there's the papal altar, in which only the Pope can celebrate the mass.
