The Papal Basilica of St. Peter in the Vatican (St. Peter's Basilica) was, until recently, the largest church ever built. It remains though as the center in Christendom.

The Basilica is also the burial site of the "first" Bishop of Rome, Saint Peter, acknowledged as the leader of the 12 Apostles. Saint Peter's tomb is supposedly directly below the high altar.

The imposing structure was built over a span of more than one hundred years by the greatest Italian architects of the era.
