A visit to the Vatican when the Christmas holidays, definitely the top tourist destinations is St. Peter’s Basilica. In the largest church in the world, usually Pope Francis will lead a prayer Mass on Christmas Eve. Before entering the St. Peter’s Basilica, we are greeted by a very broad field, namely St Peter’s Square. In St Peter’s Square is already set up chairs, which will be used by the church to hear the Pope giving the sermon.
St. Peter’s Basilica is one of the largest churches in the world. This church was founded by Bramante, Michelangelo, Carlo Maderno, and Bernini. This church carries the Renaissance architectural style. St Peter himself was the first bishop in the Roman Catholic tradition. To enter the basilica, you are not subject to pay anything and open every day. The first impression when entering the majestic Basilica was outstanding.
Almost all the objects in the room are made of marble. With ceilings were very high and decorated with three-dimensional mosaic with various motifs, the building is actually made me gasp. One is the center of attention is the large main pulpit with ornaments of high artistic value.
