What You See Inside St Peter Basilica in the Vatican

What you see inside St Peter Basilica in the Vatican will be with you in a long time, if not, forever. As someone who grew up Catholic, it’s kinda big deal for me being inside a colossal place of worship. No, I didn’t meet the living Pope but I saw the tombs of the dead […]

Unlike other cathedrals, this one doesn’t allow visitors to sit on one of the few pews inside. Its Gothic design inside gives a vast impression of the cathedral that also gives birth to the Renaissance […]
