Panoramas of the World

St. Peters Square (Rome)

Pope Alexander VII commissioned the construction of this place. Gian Lorenzo decided on an eliptic form with two semicircular column courses. An Egyptian Obelisk can be seen in the center of the place.

The area in front of the St. Peters cathedral is always filled with tourists. Whenever the Pope is present on Sundays, he shows at the window and speaks to the visitors. Every day, tourists usually line up for several hours in a long queue in order to visit the adjacent St. Peters cathedral.
