St. John Lateran

Fellow blogger Kevin Sam, New Epistles, passed along a link to a fine tour of St. John Lateran in Rome, which is the Pope's cathedral and the official ecclesiastical seat of the Bishop of Rome. Dedicated to St. John the Baptist and St. John the Evangelist in 318 AD, the Church celebrates it founding on November 9th each year. It was the Pope's official residence until the fifteenth century.
