"St. Peter`s cathedral" St. Peter's Basilica - Basilica San Pietro Tip by MichaelFalk1969


A catholic wonder of the world, framed by beautiful St. Peters square. Though it is debatable whether St. Peter is the biggest church in the world, it is certainly the most important in regard of its history, elaborate architecture (contributed by Michelangelo and Bernini) and the presence of the pope. Built on the supposed grave of the apostle Peter, it was started in 1506 and finished in 1626. Do not miss the viewing platform of St. Peters - marvelous view on the city and St. Peters square.
