Basilica of St. Paul Outside the Walls

Image

Monks of the Order of St. Benedict have managed the Basilica of St. Paul Outside the Walls for over 1,100 years.  The Basilica houses the relics of St. Paul the Apostle in the center Baldaquino.  The Basilica is one of the four Major Basilicas of Rome.  This statue of St. Benedict is in an intimate chapel to the right of the main apse where pilgrim groups are allowed to celebrate Mass.  When you enter the main door of St. Paul Outside the Walls, you feel like you are walking into a scene in Lord of the Rings.
