also located in the church of san pietro in vincoli is michelangelo's moses. this famous sculpture is part of the tomb of pope julius II. julius commissioned the tomb in 1505 but lost interest in the project because of his renovation of st. peters. michelangelo had originally planned fourty statues for the monument but he only finished "moses" and the "dying slave". this is another reason to visit this interesting church
