In the 16th century the tradition of 7 churches pilgrimages was revived. The approx. 25 km long route is usually walked. It begins in San Lorenzo fuori le Mure and ends in St. Peter'sBasilica.Since, for many pilgrims, St.Peter's Basilica is the destination of their journey, we recommend this order.  Adolph Kolping, however, went this way theother way round.
