From the Lateran Archbasilica: Secret Room Behind Papal Throne

Not many know this, but this "secret" room exists directly behind the papal throne at the Lateran.  It was constructed by Pope Leo XIII.  It is tiny and is now used for storage.  A few times I've been in there to get up to the choir loft.  Always a bit of a mysterious experience.
