Postcards from Rome
Saint Paul's Basilica
Saint Paul's Basilica is one of the most illustrious churches in Rome, erected where the great Apostole was buried. Destroyed by fire in 1823 and completely rebuild. Only a few fragments of the earlier church survived, most notably the cloister (1241), with its pairs of colorful inlaid columns, considered one of the most beautiful in Rome.
