Walk in the footsteps of St. Paul to discover his life!

A citizen of Rome, Apostle Paul requested to be brought back upon being falsely accused at the Temple of Jerusalem. Step inside the Mamertine Prison, Apostles St. Peter and St. Paul were both imprisoned here and many of the prisoners were baptized and converted during their time inside. After being brought before Emperor Nero, St. Paul was acquitted of the charges.

Visit The Church of St. Paul alla Regola, whose location is over the house where the Saint wrote some of his apostolic letters.

Visit the Abbey of the Three Fountains. During his second time as a prisoner in Rome, Saint Paul was martyred, as his head bounced three times on the floor three outflows of water miraculously sprung. Their miraculous water used to be collected by people until pollution forced them to close the springs.

End with the Basilica of St. Paul Outside the Walls, the tomb of the Saint is located in this magnificent basilica.
