Spectacular san paolo

If you like grandeur, it's clear that in Rome you'll find a lot of it, but just the other day I was recommended St. John Lateran, a spectacular basilica, I could highlight a thousand and one things, such as its courtyard entry and the image of San Pablo with his attributes, the book and the sword, which seems willing to cut off the head at the first Pass. In fact everyone does the typical picture in front of it, which he really seems to be doing!

In memory of the past

When in 1823 a great fire destroyed the Basilica of Saint Paul Outside the Walls, in Rome, it was decided to rebuild it even more beautiful and more celebratory than before. For example, you opt to organize a fact outside the entrance porch, a "quadriporticato", in which marble and other precious stones magnificassero San Paolo (buried here) and God. The goal was to enrich this green space that lies in front of the famous front gilded mosaic that illuminates hit by solar rays, even resorting to so many symbols of early Christianity, like peacocks, screws, anchors, doves. At the center, a large statue of St. Paul that before the fire, since dates from the beginning of 1800, with a sword in his right hand, a symbol of the Word of God who takes away the evil from the good. In the porch, even the Holy Staircase with its bronze doors, built for the Holy Year of 2000: behind c 'a brick wall that are demolished when there' a new jubilee, such as exceptional, special proclaimed by Pope Francis for 2015. the opulence of the decorations do not mind and religiosity of the place is intact.

In ricordo del passato

Quando nel 1823 un grande incendio distrusse la Basilica di San Paolo fuori le mura, a Roma, si decise di ricostruirla ancora più bella e più celebrativa di prima.

Per esempio, si optò per organizzare davanti all'ingresso un porticato anzi, un "quadriporticato", in cui marmi e altre pietre preziose magnificassero San Paolo (sepolto qui) e Dio.

L'obiettivo era quello di arricchire questo spazio verde che sta proprio davanti al celebre frontale in mosaico dorato che si illumina colpito dai raggi solari, ricorrendo anche a tanti simboli del Cristianesimo primitivo, come pavoni, viti, ancore, colombe.

Al centro, la grande statua di San Paolo che è antecedente all'incendio, poiché risale all'inizio del 1800, con una spada nella mano destra, simbolo della parola di Dio che toglie il male dal bene.

Nel porticato, anche la Scala Santa con le ante in bronzo, realizzata per l'anno santo del 2000: dietro c'è un muro di mattoncini che vengono demoliti quando c'è un nuovo giubileo, come quello eccezionale, speciale indetto da papa Francesco per il 2015.

L'opulenza delle decorazioni non disturba e la religiosità del luogo risulta integra.

A church to be discovered

The St. Peter's Basilica Outside the Walls is located on Via Ostiense, very close to the underground station of the same name. a church that not everyone knows and very majestic. The facade is a mosaic which features predominantly the color gold. In porch that is once past the columns you a bronze door by Antonio Maraini. The Basilica internally characterized by 5 aisles, very striking enter this basilica, especially during the celebration of Mass with the choir in the background. Looking up, one is struck by the majestic white ceiling and gold in full Renaissance style. The Basilica of Saint Paul Outside the Walls is well worth a visit and to discover.

Una chiesa tutta da scoprire

La Basilica di San Pietro fuori le mura si trova sulla Via Ostiense, vicinissima alla fermata della metropolitana omonima. È una chiesa non da tutti conosciuta e molto maestosa. La facciata è caratterizzata da un mosaico in cui spicca predominante il colore oro. Nel portico che si trova una volta superate le colonne vi è una porta di bronzo di Antonio Maraini.
La Basilica internamente è caratterizzata da ben 5 navate, è molto suggestivo entrare in questa basilica soprattutto durante la celebrazione della messa e con il coro in sottofondo. Alzando gli occhi si rimane colpiti dal maestoso soffitto bianco ed oro in pieno stile rinascimentale. La Basilica di San Paolo fuori le mura merita davvero una visita ed è tutta da scoprire.

The neoclassical basilica

The Basilica of St. Paul Outside the Walls (located on Via Ostiense, outside the Aurelian walls ... hence the name) is the second-largest basilica (after St. Peter) in the territory of the city. In addition to the treasures that lie within (including aisles) this church built in "Latin cross" also houses three chapels of remarkable workmanship (St. Stephen, Saint Lawrence, and of the holy Creator). Very nice to visit the cloister and the large park that surrounds this church ... remember that it is considered the Vatican State.

La basilica neoclassico

La basilica di San Paolo fuori le mura (si trova sulla via Ostiense, fuori dalle mura aureliane... di qui il nome) è la seconda basilica per grandezza (dopo San Pietro) presente nel territorio della città. Accanto ai tesori che si trovano all'interno (comprese le navate) questa chiesa costruita a "croce latina" ospita anche 3 cappelle di notevole fattura (di Santo Stefano, di San Lorenzo e del santissimo Creatore). Molto piacevole visitare il chiostro e l'ampio parco da cui è circondato questa chiesa... che ricordiamo è considerato Stato Vaticano.

The Basilica of Saint Paul Outside the Walls (San Paoli Fuori le Mura) is a very important religious building (It is one of four major basilicas of Rome) built in the fourth century. Its name comes from the fact that this building is built over the tomb of St. Paul and the location was located 2 kilometers from the walls of the city of Rome. This building has always been, over the centuries, embellished art and frescoes by the popes. It is a building of 131.66 meters long, 65 meters wide and 29.70 meters high.

Meeting with potatoes

Basilica with medallions of all the popes, legend has it that when you have filled in all existing medallions, each Pope to lead the Catholic Church, it is said that this religion ends. In the inner courtyard of his columns through the reconstruction after a serious fire in the nineteenth century it can be seen.

Encuentro con los papas

Basílica con los medallones de todos los papas, cuenta la leyenda que cuando se hayan rellenado todos los medallones existentes, por cada papa que dirija a la iglesia católica, se dice que se acaba esta religión.
En el patio interior a través de sus columnas se aprecia la reconstrucción después de un grave incendio del siglo XIX.
