  Palace of the Governorate of Vatican City State
by Maryimelda

This is a beautiful building which can really only be seen by the general public from the top of St Peter's Basilica. The Administration of the Vatican City State is conducted from the Governorate Palace. The Commission deals with all legislation within the State. It is made up of cardinals appointed by the Pope. Their term of office is for five years. All decisions made by the commission however, cannot be finally passed without the consent of the Pope.
