The Square and Basilica of Saint Peter is located in Rome, Italy. It is a church constructed 500 years ago.
Presumptions regarding the scale of monuments, or not knowing what to expect in their presence, can have very surprising consequences. Upon entering the Basilica di San Pietro from the East, you are overwhelmed with 284 columns and 88 pilasters of travertine marble. Each 13 meters tall, it is an amazing scene.
If the columns weren't enough, attention is quickly directed North from the spacious, 240m wide courtyard (the Piazza di San Pietro) to St. Peters Basilica.
Past the water fountains, you'd previously only find in dreams, is the massive Basilica and Michelangelo's famous dome. It is here inside where space becomes heaven and height, beauty and glamor, in its most prestine form, is wondered over.
That picture is in its raw form as taken inside the Church. Words really cannot describe the phenomena that occur inside a building size-relative to humans that convince you to believe we were ants. Admire the sun rays conforming to the room and blasting atop people as if 'the Lord' was obducting the Church's visitors. By far, the most emaculate, beautiful building I have ever seen. The amount of heart and soul given to the construction of the Basilica is beyond me and something you can only feel in the presence of it.
