St.

Peter's Square, Vatican City

The Piazza of St Peter's was built by Bernini for Pope Alexander VII in 1656-67. It was conceived as a grand
approach to the church but had to be planned so that the greatest number of people could see the Pope give
his blessing, either from the middle of the facade of the church or from a window in the Vatican Palace.
