St peters basilica
Located in the Vatican City, St. Peter’s Basilica is the most renowned work of Renaissance architecture, is regarded as the greatest building of its age and remains one of the two largest churches in the world. Aged 74, Michelangelo succeeded Antonio da Sangallo the Younger as chief architect of the building. He is regarded the principal designer of a large part of the building and although he died before completion of the project, it was Michelangelo who brought the construction to a point where it could be carried through.
The Last Judgement is one of the most influential works in fresco in the history of Western art. Painted on the altar wall of the Sistine Chapel in Vatican City, it depicts the Second Coming of Christ (a future return of Jesus to earth) and the final and eternal judgment by God of all humanity. Jesus is shown in the center of the painting and is surrounded by prominent saints; while the Resurrection of the Dead and the Descent of the Damned into Hell is shown in the zone below.
