  • Located just off the holy staircase, and in front of the Basilica of St. John Lateran, this property is a remake of a part of the old papal palace, in the section destined for banquets. The mosaic in which Christ catechizes the apostles is very beautiful.

  • This is where the Apse portion of the old Laterano Palace's papal diner remains. The ornate mosaic that adorn the dome part above is called the 8th century work, and it is deserve to be so weatherproof. Right in front of Laterano Cathedral and next to Scala Santa, you'll see the passing.

  • The remains of the old Laterano Palace, where the mosaic of gold catches the eye. The palace, which was abandoned in Avignon, is demolished in the days of Pope Sixtus V. Leave the walls of Leo Trinium and move three mosaics to this wall. The middle is Christ and the Apostle. The right side of the wall niche is Pope Leo III and Saint Peter and Karl the emperor. The left is Pope Silwesel I and Constantine JE. I was worried about the tights of the stripes of Karl the Emperor and Constantine.

  • The Triclinium Leoninum (also known as Nicchione del Lateran) is a singular remand of an ancient triclinium built by Pope Leo III, modeling a hall of the imperial palace of Constantinople. The history linked to this characteristic monument of Rome can be traced back to the time of Pope Leo III. The part visible today is in fact the last part of a state banquet room that was part of the palace of the pontiff. Pope Anastasio III gives us news of it and we know that pope Leo IV already proceeded to a restoration of the hall when it was still intact and attached to the palace. Featuring a polyphore facade, the setting was preceded by a closed porch overlooking the lateran field with three doors, while, on the left, a fourth ensured the passage to the palace which, as the 16th-century historian Panvinio recalls, in this way it could be reached by the basilica. The porch was lower than the facade and this was decisive in view of bonifacio VIII's choice of site for the construction of the Lodge of Blessings. The current structure dates back to the end of the sixteenth century when Pope Sisto V gave orders to demolish the old lateran palace, but preserved the Triclinium Leoninum. It is possible that some parts of the original mosaics have been preserved in a mosaic in three parts: in the Christ center he entrusts the Apostles their mission, on the left he hands the keys to Saint Sylvester and the Labaro to Constantine, while on the right St. Peter gives the stola to Leo III and the insignia to Charlemagne. The current structure is the result of the restorations of 1743 by the architect Ferdinandfuga Fuga that led to the affixing of the coat of arms of Benedict XIV above the niche.

  • The Triclinium Leoninum that we can admire at St. John's Square and what remains of the old Lateran palace originally built by Leo III and over the centuries renovated until the demolition that took place at the end of the sixteenth century at the hands of Sisto V. From the dimensions of the back wall of the pope's hall of representation, we can only imagine the grandeur of this environment. A curiosity, Leo III was the Pope who as far back as December 25 of the year 800 crowned Charlemagne Emperor of the holy Roman empire and defender of Christianity.

  • Outside the building of the Holy staircase, there is this beautiful building the "Triclinio Leoniano", which is a remake of the 1743 of a part of the papal building of the Middle Ages (ancient palace of the Lateran), where were held the banquets of Representation. It is a great newsstand, of classic style with pilasters and pediment and a niche with a mosaic. The central mosaic represents Christ who catechizes the apostles. Note Triclinium from Latin means local where lunch was served.
