Your experience


  • Get to know the fascinating history of the Pauluskirche outside the walls and choose from two travel guides
  • See the largest church in Rome after St. Peter, originally founded by Emperor Constantine in the 4th century
  • Learn more about the life of a monk by visiting the cloister built between 1208 and 1235


The St. Paul Basilica is the largest church in Rome (after St. Peter's). The original burnt down in the 19th century, but many of the original treasures have been preserved. The 5th century Arc de Triomphe, the Gothic marble hut shimmering over the main altar and the nearby Benedictine Abbey. Grab one of two different guides and concentrate on the basilica.

Much of what stands in place of this incredible basilica is a 19th century reconstruction. The original was destroyed in a fire in 1823. Regret the poor worker who repaired the lead on the roof of the 4th century church and caused the damage.

The good news is that today's church is a faithful reconstruction of the original. Enjoy the explanation of your guide about the history of this remarkable church and see many of the preserved ancient treasures. For example the 5th century mosaic encrusted triumphal arch, the Gothic marble tent and the 12th century Romanesque Easter candlestick with its strange animal creatures.

If you want to see everything this place has to offer, you can visit the cloister of the Benedictine abbey, the archaeological area (including the tomb of Saint Paul himself, the patron saint of authors, workers and saddlers, among others) and the picture gallery.

There is so much to see and hear in this important church, so get informed and off you go!
