Basilica of St Peter | Interior of St. Peter’s Basilica. The solemn magnificence of the interior, resplendent in gold, shining in a fabulous profusion of rare marble, and sparkling with mosaics, is one of the most magnificent works of man and is beyond all power of description. Architecture, painting, sculpture, and the art-making mosaic of casting bronze have lavished their beauties and treasures on it. The church was built during the 16th century, the period of most glorious splendor for Italian art when Italian soil produced so many outstanding artists and when the flame of genius seemed to be a privilege of Italians and passed without interruption in their hands (Galileo was born on the same day and in the very hour of the death of Michelangelo) as if God had purposely created these divinely inspired intellects for the erection of the most incredible temple of Christianity. Guide of the Vatican.

Basilica of St Peter | When entering the church for the first time, one loses all sense of proportion, and the first impression is confusion and disappointment regarding the size of the building. Only by comparing the living, moving figures with the size of the different parts of the tower can one form an idea of its immensity. The colossal proportion of the statues and ornaments and the significant interruptions of the lines help to dwarf the building.

The angels holding the basins for holy water enable us to appreciate the church’s large dimensions; looked at from a distance, they appear to be the size of ordinary children, but once approached, they are found to be larger than a full-grown person—official Vatican Tour Guide. Rome is a walking city Tour.

Opposite the central or principal entrance, a large round slab of porphyry may be noticed on the floor. It marks where Popes crowned the emperors of the “Holy Roman Empire”: the first, Charlemagne, in 800, and the last, Frederick of Syria, crowned by Pope Nicholas V, in 1452. Around the nave are colossal statues of the founders of different religious orders. Basilica of St Peter.

Proceeding towards the high altar, we notice inscriptions on the floor showing the length of the largest churches in the world: S. Paul’s in London, the Cathedral of Florence, etc. DriverGuideService in Rome, Rome Private Tours Statue of Peter’s Basilica– Vatican – Rome Guided Tours

The toes of the statue of St. Peter (Basilica of St Peter) are worn away by the kisses of the faithful of so many generations. The statue, one of the few relics of the old church, is said to have been cast by Pope St. Leo I (440-461) to commemorate Rome’s delivery from the Attila invasion.
