As the ultimate symbol of Catholicism and with a dome dominating the Roman skyline, St Peter's Basilica stands proud on the burial site of Saint Peter following his crucifixion in 64CE. The current structure was initiated by Pope Julius II when held a design competition in 1505. Over the following 120 years successive Popes asserted their influence over the construction and design. The result is the largest interior of any church in the world and boasts incredible artistry and workmanship.
Before entering the Basilica, be sure to stop and pause for reflection in St Peter's Square, situated immediately in front of the impressive church. The forecourt was originally demarcated in the mid seventeenth century under the direction of Pope Alexander VII.
Rome features more than 900 churches, so it's definitely worth exploring some of the smaller places of worship for comparison with the monumental structures.
