Here Lies St. Pete

The monument over the crypt of St. Peter in the Vatican

Today’s image of the day was another shot capturing the grandeur that is St. Peter’s Basilica in the Vatican.  This structure is the baldacchino – a one hundred foot pavilion marking the spot where it is believed that St. Peter is buried.  At one time it was thought to be the largest bronze structure in the world – and probably still is.  This isn’t one of Michelangelo’s works – Bernini gets the nod for this one.
