On the left side of the Basilique you will find a holy door which is so far the only holy door opened outside of Europe. On April, 2015, Pope Francis announced a Holy Year/Jubilee. During this time December 12 2015 until November 20 2016, dioceses from across the world will be invited to organize pastoral activities related to mercy.
