A journey through the four Papal Basilicas in Rome and their treasures: St. Peter's, St. John in the Lateran, St. Mary Major and St. Paul Outside the Walls. Four majestic buildings - each with a precious papal altar, each a treasure trove of timeless works of art and a destination for millions of travellers and pilgrims over the centuries – play the leading role in this cinematic tour de force, while state of the art technology captures amazing images from completely new and exclusive points of view.
