Swiss Guard of the Pope

Kim Rowland

The Vatican is since about six centuries the residence of the pope and since 1921 it's presenting an independent state called Vatican_City. The biggest square of the Vatican and the whole Rome is the Peter's Square, on it there is the biggest temple of the Christendom, the Vatican Basilica. In 1546 Michelangelo started with the construction of a dome, which was finished after he died in 1589. You can climb up this dome today and enjoy a unforgettable view over the Eternal City from its top.
