Saint Peter’s Basilica

Taken from outside the Castel Sant Angelo looking down the Via della Concilizione we can see the huge dome of Saint Peter’s Basilica. Looking very closely you may be able to see the scale of this building by looking for the people stood directly in front at the bottom of some of the columns. The cross at the top of the dome is 138 metres (452 feet) from St. Peter’s Square at the bottom and although completed in 1626 the building took 120 years to construct!
