Virtual tour to Saint Peter´s Basilica

This is another interesting link you can use to make a virtual tour of Saint Peter´s Basilica in the Vatican. As we have studied, four architects contributed to its design (Bramante, Rafael, Michelangelo and Maderno). In the 17th century Gian Lorenzo Bernini designed the square in Baroque style and he was also responsible for the baldachin of the altar of the Basilica.
