Papal Archbasilica of Saint John Lateran - Rome

The Basilica of Saint John Lateran is the oldest basilica of Rome. It was founded by Constantine in the 4th century and remains the Cathedral of Rome with the Pope as its Bishop. Borromini modified the façade and decorated the interior in Baroque style. Of particular note is the 13th century cloister by Vassaletto in Cosmatesque-style inlaid marble. The Baptistery is also worth a visit as its chapels are decorated with magnificent mosaics dating from the 5th to 7th centuries.
