St Peter’s Square/Piazza San Pietro

St. Peter's Square in front of the stunning backdrop of St. Peter's Basilica is one of the most beautiful squares in the world. Bernini created the split Piazza in 1667 and gave the believers a sufficient space for meetings and prayers. Directly in front of the steps of St. Peter's Basilica, which are flanked by the statues of the Apostles Peter and Paul, extends a trapezoidal lower square, which flows into the 340 metres long and 240 metres wide, elliptical square. The main square is surrounded by two semicircular, quadruple colonnades with 284 columns and 88 pillars. From the balustrade 140 saints overlook the square. Left and right on the square, Bernini built two 14-metre-high fountains, splashing water fountains in their two huge granite bowls. In the paving on the left and on the right side, in the foci of the ellipse, there are two points marked. From here, the four pillars of the colonnade appear as a single one.

The square is really an architectural masterpiece created by the genious Gian Lorenzo Bernini: a huge 240 meter ellipse that, with its colonnade symbolically embraces all the faithful.
