S. Paolo fuori le Mura is located outside the ancient walls of Rome.? The original 4th century basilica, built under Constantine, was destroyed by fire in 1823 and only a few of the original fragments remain.? The basilica was formed with the union of the pre-existing Church of San Lorenzo (330 A.D.) and the Church of the Blessed Virgin (432 - 440 A.D.).? The confessional below the altar contains the Tomb of St. Paul, who was buried here after his martyrdom in 67 A.D.
