The Rock Of St. Peter

The Rock Of St. Peter

St. Peter’s Basilica is truly an impressive site even in the evening. The dome is lit like a brilliant jewel serving as Christianity’s homing beacon throughout Rome. An interesting thing I learned is that no buildings are allowed to be taller than the basilica which explains why you’ll never see any high-rises in Rome. That’s my brother in the foreground using the barrier to steady his camera.
