Rome And It’s Beautiful Churches/ Anneklien’sSoloTravels&Adventure

Rome is regarded the eternal  city. The Vatican City is where  the papal residence. Catholic is the predominant religion  in the country. No wonder why in every  steps and corner theres  a Cathedral,  church and chapels. I was raised and grew up  in a catholic country. Every time  I  to go to a new places, I  always  make  sure I  go and do visita Iglesia.  Rome is not short  of places  to go for church visit. Lets go and visit the Ancient Papal Basilicas.

St. Peters  Basilica

First stop is in The St. Peters Basilica
, the famous  and most photograph church in Rome. The ancient basilica completes the beautiful façade of classic example of a Renaissance building. The work of art display inside like Bernini’s baldachin and Michelangelo’s Pietà.
The  only draw back is the long queue getting in. You need  to get there early and the entrance  is free, not unless you want to visit  the Sistine  Chapel to admire the  painted ceilings by Michael Angelo and climb up the Cupola/ Dome for the panoramic view.

Sant Giovani Church

It may not  be  as famous  as the  first church, but its full of history. It is the cathedral church of the Diocese of Rome and the official ecclesiastical seat of the Pope.
The stunning Baroque architectural style is another magnificent  church
for photography. Admire  the stunning altar, it’s  intricate  design  is so beautiful.

San Paolo

It is where the tomb of Paul’s found just below a marble tombstone in the Basilica’s crypt, below the altar.
There are numerous relics found inside, the most notable of which are a set of chains that is said to be the prison chains of St Paul. There’s also an exposed excavation of an apse of the first Constantinian Basilica.

I love exploring the Churches around Rome. Along the iconic bridges to historic buildings. Rome is such a beauty and capturing every corner is so wonderful.

  1. Wonderful photos. We have often commented how we end up roaming around churches all over the world despite being atheists! They are however some of the most beautiful buildings in the world and a great insight into the culture of a city.
