Basilica San Giovanni in Laterano, Rome: 59 reviews and 137 photos
The cathedral of Rome was founded by Pope Melchiades (3rd c.), but on the occasion of the 1650 Jubilee Borromini decorated the old structures with stucco work and polychrome marbles.
The last door on the right of the monumental façade is opened only in Holy Years.
Among the funeral monuments and cardinals' tomb inside, worthy of note is the recumbent statue of Riccardo Annibaldi by Arnolfo di Cambio (1276).
Of great interest is the suggestive cloister (13th c.) with its elegan columns dorned with mosaics.
