Archbasilica of St. John Lateran - Rome

The Archbasilica of the Most Holy Savior and Saints John the Evangelist and the Baptist at the Lateran or, better yet, Archbasilica of St. John Lateran in Rome is a IV century work of art built on the Horti Laterani, the Laterani family estate. Known as the “mother of all churches”, St. John Lateran is the oldest and highest ranking of the four major papal basilicas, for this reason it’s considered the most important basilica of the Western world; St. John Lateran is also the ecclesiastical seat of the Holy Father meaning that only the Pope, Bishop of Rome, may celebrate mass from its alter. Although geographically located outside the Vatican City walls, the basilica enjoys extraterritorial status from Italy and is de facto property of the Holy See.
