Piazza San Pietro owes its celebrity to the monumental colonnade

Standing over is the large cupola by Michelangelo, which is second only to the Pantheonís dome. At the center of the square is the Vatican obelisk.



The back≠ground of the square is characterized by the huge facade of the basilica of San Pietro.

At the end of the via della Conciliazione is Castel Sant'Angelo named after the presence of the angel Saint Michael with the sword.

 This building is the biggest of the Roman age after the



 Colosseum and connected to the Vatican by a corridor called "passetto".
