Experience the reverence of the Pope--and the heart of Catholicism--in the historic St. Peter's Square (Piazza San Pietro), the area in front of St. Peter's Basilica. During the Pope's weekly blessing, the plaza is filled with thousands of spectators. During the rest of the week, you can admire 17th-century Baroque architecture and the massive stone colonnades that frame the entrance to the basilica. A 25.5 m (84 ft) tall red-granite Egyptian obelisk marks the center of the plaza.
