Visiting Vatican City: Modern vestige of the Papal States

Arguably one of the finest and the most controversial country of the world, Vatican City with its stern foundation of religion stands as an embodiment of faith, upon which many years of art and beauty has culminated.

Thought to be the finest cathedral, St. Peter’s is considered to be the spiritual centre of Christianity, and the product of many great renaissance architects of Italy. Donato Bramante, Michelangelo, Raphael are some of the masters who designed the Papal States. The piazza san pietro’s grand and magnificent design has forever retained its classical beauty and importance in the form of a platform to serve thousands of assembled devotees to receive the pope’s blessings. Some of the finest paintings and sculptures ever created are still possessed by Vatican. Tourists visiting Vatican, generally come to see the Basilica of St. Peter, the St. Peter’s square, the Sistine chapel, the museums and the Raphael rooms and all other vestiges of the Papal States.
