St Peter’s Basilica enjoys a long and winding history. Though the church stood at this precise location for centuries, the construction of the temple we see today started in 1506 and was completed only in 1626. Some of the prominent artists and architects of the time made their mark on the final structure. The building was dedicated to one of Jesus’s disciples and founders of the Catholic Church, Saint Peter, who was executed in Rome and buried where his Basilica stands today.
