Rome, Italy was the place that first constructed St. Peter's Basilica in 313 A.D. Jesus' Disciples St. Peter and St. Paul preached and then were martyred in Rome as well as The Bishop of Rome. The Pope resides in Rome and Rome is the headquarters of the Catholic Church. The Catholic religion is considered the largest in the Christian denomination. Thousands make the pilgrimage each year to visit Rome. Some come for healing, prayer, to have mass with the Pope and to site see. Each and every year they come, from all over the globe to have Mass with the Pope at the Vatican. This is a huge Catholic tradition. The religious history is prominent everywhere you look. You can not miss it as it is practically, everywhere. I would love to visit this country someday. All religions are respected in this religious country but, it is mostly Christians specifically Catholics. The Catholic religion or Christianity promotes peace in these troubled times.
