Pictures of St. Peters

St Peters

St. Peters was first built under Emperor Constatntine and was first completed in 349 A.D. The church over time became very run down. In 1452 restoration began on the building which continued for the next two hundred years. During this period, Raphael, Michelangelo and many other note worthy architects added to the buildings design. In front of the St. Peters Square is surrounded by groups of Colonnades designed by Bernini. Each of these hald oval sides had four rows of Doric columns.
