  • Behind the statues of St. Paul and St. Peter there is another famous landmark of the Vatican: the Holy Door. This is one of the five doors of St. Peter's Basilica, located in the far right corner of the Church. The Holy Door opens only in the years of the so-called Jubilee. Jubilee or Holy year announces the new Pope began in December of the year 2015. Closed in the rest of the time the Holy door (as well as other Saints 3 Door, located in the main Papal Basilicas in Rome) will be opened and all who enter into it (as well as three others) of the Church and the Pope will release all the sins. The Jubilee year of the Catholic Church in Rome will last from December 2015 to December 2016 year. Very beautifully crafted doors
