St. Peter’s Basilica: The Largest Catholic Church in the World

St Peter

St. Peter’s Basilica, the center of Christianity, is the largest and most famous Roman Catholic Church in the world. The building is an amazing feat of architecture.  The structure was built over a span of more than 100 years. It is traditionally believed to have been erected over the spot where St. Peter, considered the first pope, was buried. Located within the walls of the Vatican, St. Peter’s Basilica is a place where religion, history and art blend. Last Thursday, the head of the Catholic Church, Pope Benedict XVI officially stepped down, making him the first pope to resign after 600 years.
