About Churches in Rome

Rome is eternally Catholic, with architecturally beautiful Religious Churches scattered all over the country. Rome can be a cultural experience for both the catholics, and non-catholics, and provide one with experiences that makes Rome, the stunning place that it is.

Basilica of Santa Maria Del Popolo

Of all the churches in Rome, Basilica of Santa Maria del Popolo is special, and equally stunning with the works of the best Renaissance artists. During 1099, a belief spread across Rome that the ghost of Nero haunted the area near North gate. The belief came to existence due to evil looking crows that resorted on a tree. As a combat to this problem, the tree was chopped down, and a church was built in its place.

St. Peter's Basilica

St. Peter's Basilica is the most famous church in the entire world, even though it may not be the oldest one. It is believed that this church is built at the site where St. Peter, the first Pope, was crucified. It takes time to savour the adjoining chapels, and museum. Famous Renaissance artists, such as Michelangelo, designed the interior. The basilica took more than 150 years to complete, but the wait was worth the while.

Basilica Di Santa Maria Maggiore

Also known as, St. Mary Major Basilica is one of the important Religious Churches in Rome. The church contains a myriad of artefacts, representing Rome's ancient Christian art civilisation. Every bit and pieces of this basilica has some connections with the religious history. A miracle of snow celebration is held on the August 5th, when thousands of white petals are dropped down from the ceiling.  

San Giovanni in Laterano

St. John Lateran aka San Giovanni in Laterano is listed among popular Basilicas in Rome. The Basilica serves as the home cathedral for the archbishop or Rome, and for the Pope. It is dedicated to the Evangelist and the Baptist, John. It is also known as 'World’s and Rome’s cathedral.’ According to people’s belief, it is the first Catholic Church built in Rome.

Basilica of San Clemente

Named after St. Clement, who was the third Pope after St. Peter, this basilica is located a few blocks away from Colosseum. The present church is built over almost four layers, including churches and houses that were destroyed earlier. At one part of the history, the church used to be a Pagan temple. The church even showcases beautiful mosaics, and frescoes.

Rome is a real mix of tradition, and modern culture. The city flares its culture, acting like the magnetic that gathers tourists from all over the world. Religious Churches in Rome is equally breath-taking, and devotional that would make anyone feel at ease.
