The Basilica San Pietro is clearly the major attraction of Vatican City, along with the Piazza di San Pietro right in front of it. When you are entering the Piazza, you are already on the grounds of the fully independent Vatican City! The Piazza was built from 1656 to 1667 by Bernini who was quite active in Rome. This is regarded as his masterpiece. Today the place can take up to 60,000 believers.
