Description

Join us on a 2,000 year journey to discover the history, art and architecture of the world’s largest church, centerpiece of the Catholic faith and the world’s ultimate Christian pilgrimage destination: St. Peter’s Basilica.

This will be an immersive journey from its earliest foundations on the site of the emperor Nero’s ancient circus, where the apostle’s martyrdom took place, through the construction of the first, magnificent Constantinian basilica.

We will virtually walk though the second church, which replaced the old one in the Renaissance and came to be the largest building site in Europe: St. Peter’s took over 120 years to build. We will learn how every great artist of the age had a hand in the rebuilding project, from Bramante to Raphael, Michelangelo and more.

Making our virtual way through the church we will stop in front of Michelangelo’s beautifully moving Pietà, the young sculptor’s first Roman commission to make his name. You’ll also be introduced to Baroque master Gianlorenzo Bernini, as the basilica stands as a lasting testament to his genius. His baldacchino, with its grandeur and complex symbolism, still marks the burial place of the first pope of Rome, St Peter.

No story of Western culture can be told without St. Peter’s.
