Beautiful Sunset, St Peter's Basilica, Vatican City, Rome, Italy - St. Peter's is the most renowned work of Renaissance architecture, it is also the largest church in the world. Catholic tradition holds that the Basilica is the burial site of Saint Peter, one of Jesus's Apostles and also considered the first Pope. Peter, like Jesus, was crucified (Caravaggio painted the incredible Crucifixion of St. Peter). The bridge in the foreground over the Tiber is Ponte Sant'Angelo, completed in 134 AD by Roman Emperor Hadrian.
