This church is HUGE. It is one of those places that's difficult to find the words that will adequately describe it. The door of the church alone was massive.
There are several small side chapels throughout the church where services were taking place but the main alter was incredible; such ornate architecture.
Amazing architecture, extensive history, glorious art displayed inside - something for everyone. Allow yourself plenty of time to really appreciate it.
If you‘ve read the book Angels and Demons or The DaVinci Code, St. Peter’s will have a very familiar feel for you. With the sunlight coming in and hitting the wall, I envisioned this being the exact place the authors sat as they wrote the manuscripts.
