Saint Paul Outside the Walls is one of the four major basilicas of Rome. The front facade of the basilica is covered in a bright gold mosaic of key church figures and doctrines.Inside you'll find a portrait of every pope lining the ceiling. Tradition has it that when all the spaces for the popes are filled, the Final Judgement will come.If you make your way to the right of the alter, you'll find a lush courtyard and mini-museum of relics and catacomb tombstones.
