Description

Interior view of Basilica of Saint Paul Outside the Walls looking towards the altar from the main entrance. An arcade of Corinthian columns line the nave. Mosaic roundel portraits of every pope surmount the arcade in a frieze-like fashion. The coffered ceiling is ornately decorated. A triumphal arch with frescoes and mosaics demarcate the apse of the Basilica.
