Ite ad Thomam Tours: St. John Lateran, Rome's Cathedral

Which is the Pope's Cathedral?  It's not St. Peters Basilica!  Rather, it is St. John Lateran, which is, as the inscription on its façade says, the omnium urbis et orbis ecclesiarum mater et caput ("The mother and head of the churches of the city and of the world").  Learn about the history and art of Rome's Cathedral Church by reading the Sacred Destinations article, and then take a self-guided tour through the streets surrounding the church by using the Google Maps page below!
