Started in 1506 over the old Constantinian basilica, it is the burial site of its namesake Saint Peter, who was one of the twelve apostles of Jesus and, according to tradition, the first Bishop of Rome and therefore first in the line of the papal succession. You will enjoy the visit of this amazing baroque church with it’s Vatican grottos (Popes tombs), Michelangelo’s Dome and Pieta’, with it’s unique altar (Baldacchino) and many other works of the best artists of the period.
