St. Peter's Basilica

St. Peter’s Basilica is the largest cathedral in the world, and when you are inside it looks like it. This is the outside.

These are the guards that stand outside the cathedral. I don’t think they scare anybody in their clown pants!

Pictures don’t do justice to how enormous this place is on the inside. It just keeps going and going and going, and then it goes some more!

I wasn’t too fond of this next statue because throughout this whole cathedral there are statues of the Pope seeming to portray him as greater than he actually is. Maybe I’m off in this, but that’s what I thought. See what you think.
