Piazza San Pietro in Italian.

The St. Peter’s Square is the square in front of the Basilica of San Pietro.
The famous square is an outstanding example of Baroque architecture and urbanism. Piazza San Pietro is the daily meeting place of thousands of worldwide Catholic faithful and tourists.
Piazza San Pietro was commissioned by Alexander VII and realized by Bernini who found an elegant urban and symbolic solution, designing a colonnade that deviates from the St. Peter’s basilica as two arms that would welcome the crowd.
