Rome, Italy - May 16, 2014: St. Peter's Square in the Vatican City, random tourists captured, photo taken in Italy, Rome, Vatican City
Description
St. Peter's Basilica and St. Peter's Square (Piazza San Pietro) in the Vatican City. XXXL Panorama. is a massive plaza located directly in front of St. Peter's Basilica in the Vatican City, the papal enclave surrounded by Rome, directly west of the neighbourhood or rione of Borgo. At the centre of the square is an [egyptian obelisk], erected at the current site in 1586. Gian Lorenzo Bernini designed the square almost 100 years later, including the massive Tuscan colonnades, four columns deep, which embrace visitors in "the maternal arms of Mother Church." A granite fountain constructed by Bernini in 1675 matches another fountain designed by Carlo Maderno dating to 1613.
