As my calendar says today commemorates the dedication of the Lateran Basilica in Rome I thought I would post some photos I took when I was there in May 2008. For those who dont know the church of St John Lateran is the cathedral of Rome not St Peter`s. wikipedia article
Yes the exterior looks a bit like St Peter`s.
A Papal throne.
At the end of mass.
The very ornate ceiling.
One of the many side chapels.
Sorry for the poor photo quality however it does give a sense of the church`s size.
A 5 min video I found. Neither my photos nor the video do this beautiful church justice.
