After showing some great Buddhist and Islamic structures on ExposedPlanet, it is the turn for the Catholics today, the day of the Reyos Magicos :-)
One of the better results of the Christian accumulation of wealth was this magnificent piece of art, the San Pietro or St Peter’s Cathedral in the Vatican City, which itself is embedded in the city of Rome.
Totally filled with priceless mosaics and sculptures, it is one big museum. This is what you see when you look up and see the light :) , the rays of the sun poking through the windows of the great dome of the cathedral.
Strangely I was allowed to take my monopod through the tight security, but once inside I was not allowed to actually use it. As it had a rubber foot -which was better than most of the high heels of the overweight tourists- I can only guess that they do not like images being shot professionally, except the ones on sale in their shop, just outside ;-)
