Rome has for centuries been a beacon for travelers.  As the home of the Pope and the Catholic curia, as well as the locus of a many sites and relics of veneration related to apostles, saints and Christian martyrs; Rome has  been a destination for pilgrims for very long time. Periodically, the most were propelled to travel to Rome for achiving  spiritual benefits, indulgences accrued through a papally sanctioned Jubilee. These indulgences required a visit to specific churches.

The churches include the four patriarchal basilicas:

  • St. Peter’s Basilica
  • Basilica of St. John Lateran
  • Basilica of St. Paul Outside-the-Walls
  • Basilica of Santa Maria Maggiore

They also include two minor basilicas and a shrine:

  • Basilica of St. Lawrence Outside the Walls
  • Basilica of the Holy Cross in Jerusalem
  • Sanctuary of Our Lady of Divine Love
  • formerly St. Sebastian Outside the Walls, replaced on pilgrimage route by Pope John Paul II in the year 2000

The last of these was added by Pope Saint John Paul II for the Great Jubilee of 2000, replacing St. Sebastian Outside the Walls. However, many pilgrims still prefer the pre-2000 seven basilicas and so also attend St. Sebastian’s in addition to the ones required for the indulgence.
During Holy Years, indulgences are granted to those who visit certain churches. In Rome, there are seven such churches. This tradition is related to the work of St. Philip Neri, who devoted much of his time to helping pilgrims and introduced a list of seven basilicas.
