St. Peters Basilica - A Place for Sacred Prayers and Everlasting Worship

If you are going to visit Rome and you can only visit one church, it has to be St. Peters Basilica. It is not only one of the largest churches in the world; it is right on the seat of Christianity.  Aside from being a place for prayers and worship, St. Peters Basilica exemplifies the grandiose and magnificence of churches that were built centuries ago. It is a labor of love, and no stones were left unturned to express gratitude and reverence to our Creator.

Located in Vatican, St. Peters Basilica is named after St. Peter, widely considered as the first pope of the Roman Catholic Church. The basilica is open daily and you must be in a proper attire to enter. Aside from visiting the basilica, you can also take a tour of the Historic and Artistic Museum; climb up St. Peter’s Dome; and visit the Vatican Grottoes and the Tomb of St. Peter and the Pre-Constantine Necropolis; all of which are within the basilica.

If the exterior of the Basilica left you speechless, its lavish interior will astound you.  It is simply breathtaking! The center of both its exterior and interior is monopolized by St. Peters Dome, one of the largest in the world. Its interiors feature many stunning work of arts including Michelangelo’s Pieta and his high-reachng dome, and Bernini’s canopy on top of the papal altar. St. Peters Basilica will move you with its beauty, splendor and history.

Words cannot describe the feeling that will overwhelm you when you visit St. Peters Basilica.  It is the most important religious site in the Christian world.
