Yet another church

Acting as a contrast to the Catholic churches already reviewed, this newer building is still, nonetheless, a very impressive structure.

The church has a real impressive exterior appearance. However, its interior was a bit plain and did not match the sheer awe of the exterior. If one is touring and is pressed in time, there is no need to check it from inside.

An enormous church built from a Roman basilica. Gives a sense of scale and grandeur,but is very plain as befits a Protestant church.

The space of this church is huge. It is difficult to imagine that Ancient Romans managed to build it without columns inside.

The Basilica was the key meeting room for the Roman emperor. Its size is incredible. Well restored (only parts of the wall are original). The current church inside is for itself not worth visiting, only to see the inside of the building.

Beautiful and serene. Well worth a visit to sit, relax and slow down. Read about the history beforehand so you understand the church.

According to the tour guide, this building was built in the 4th century as the emperor's Constantine throne and it's believed that 1.8 million bricks were used. Only the east and north walls are original, and the outside walls that look bare bricks, used to be plastered with beautiful painting when originally built. One can still see some of the... More

Rather than a visitor I was attending as a guest for a family Christening so had the experience of being in the Basilica for a service. However, Being a guest I didn't have anytime to really explore so the review will probably not include a lot of incidentals a normal visitor might notice. I should also mention my visit happened...

A lovely, spartan, huge structure, originally a throne room but now a Lutheran church. There is a model inside that shows how the Porta Nigra would easily fit inside this Basilica. Constantine built this structure as he alsodid the enormous Dom. He obviously though bigger was better.

It is called a basilica locally, but it started as a throne room. The last emperor to inhabit this space move out in 395. By the 12th century the archbishops had taken it over, and were using it as a courtyard and a five story palace. The building became a Lutheran church in 1856 and it is still the leading... More
