21/42.- Rome, The Vatican, inside Saint Peters’s basilica


This is the major altar of the Church. This 'Baldacchino' designed by Bernini is located in the intersection of the two lateral wings of this Roman Cross Basilica.

Only the Pope can use this altar. The altar is surrounded by the Solomonic columns you see. Under this altar the corpse of Saint Peter rests in peace.
