Description

An interior view of the Papal Basilica of Saint Lawrence Outside the Walls looking towards the chancel and crypt. Similar to the west narthex, monolithic columns with ionic capitals line the perimeter of the nave. Frescoes of saints decorate the upper wall portion of the nave. Stairs lead up to the altar, wich is covered by a baldachin. Below the altar is the catacomb of St. Lawrence.
