St. Peter's Basilica


St. Peter’s Basilica is a Catholic major Basilica in the Vatican City in Rome. This building is often described as the largest church ever built. It covers an area of  23,000 squared metres and it is one of the most worshipped sites in Christendom. The construction of St. Peter’s was begun in 1506 and finished in 1626. (…).


Two clocks are on either side of the top, the one on the left is electrically operated since 1931, with its oldest bell dating to 1288.(…).
