Saint Peter’s Basilica (3/9)

One of the most historic and recognisable churches in the world, Saint Peter’s Basilica also boasts the fact that it is easily one of the most beautifully designed and still one of the most important. Though technically not the ‘mother’ of the Catholic Church, Saint Peter’s Basilica is seen by the entire religious movement as a highly important place in terms of their spirituality and frequently attracts thousands of pilgrims and followers who gather to listen to the current Pope’s sermons. Supposedly housing the grave of Saint Peter, the church has felt the influence of some of the greatest Renaissance architects ever seen, chiefly Michelangelo.
