St. Peter's Basilica
The largest, most famous and magnificant basilica in the world. Within it lie works of art (including Michaelangelo's 'Pieta') covering almost 2000 years of history. The Basilica was originally built where the Apostle Peter was believed to have been buried. The current Basilica was inaugurated in 1626 and only later the square in front was planned and completed with its colonnade by Berini.
