San Pietro In Vincoli

Edit This
St. Peter in Chains was first built around 442 AD, and has been modified many times since. A shrine before the altar contains the chains that held St. Peter when he was imprisoned. To the right of the altar is a grand statue, the centerpiece of which is Moses. The statue of Moses was created by Michelangelo, while the surrounding works were done by his students. This church is a little tucked away but is fairly close to the Colliseum.
