The biggest church in the world, St. Peter's Basilica, an amazing creation of Renaissance and Baroque architecture. The Basilica soars up 140 meters (420 ft) with its dome into the heavenly skies, and goes deep down into the earth, to the tomb of St. Peter, over which it was built.
The largest church in the world, it has a 218 meter long nave. The interior, which includes 45 altars, is decorated by many famous artists.
Michelangelo made tricks in architecture so everything looks so close.
On the floor you can see measures of other cathedral all over the world to compare longiness.
