Until the construction of St. Peters Basilica in 1626, St.Paul's Basilica was the largest church in Rome. This being said, it is still one of Romes most important churches and continues to be a popular pilgrimage destination, even to this day. Built above St. Pauls grave, the church is a monument to the Apostle, with its intricate mosaics, bold columns and breathtaking pieces of artworks, this national monument isn't one to be missed.
