A basilica is a type of building, usually a Christian church, usually with a slightly raised platform and an apse at one or both ends. That is typically rectangular with a central nave and aisles, in Europe and the Americas it is the most common architectural style for churches though this building plan has become less dominant in new buildings since the later 20th century. Today the term basilica is often used to refer to any large, even if it does not strictly follow this style.

As well as serving other official and public functions. Ornate church building, especially Roman Catholic and Eastern Orthodox, usually adjacent to the main forum. The basilican architectural style originated in ancient Rome and was originally used for public buildings where courts were held, the major church buildings were typically constructed with this style and thus it became popular throughout Europe.

The basilica was centrally located in every Roman town, receiving tens of millions of visitors per year. As the Roman Empire adopted Christianity, in December 2009 the Basilica of Our Lady of Guadalupe in Mexico City set a new record with 6. Many older Roman Catholic basilicas are Catholic pilgrimage sites – 1 million pilgrims during Friday and Saturday for the anniversary of Our Lady of Guadalupe.
