Saturday Snapshot: Monument in St. Peter’s

tomb of gregory xiii

In St. Peter’s, there are no paintings. Only sculptures and mosaics which is unusual for a church from that period. As you wander around gawking at the scale of the church, you’ll encounter quite a few massive sculptures along the way like this one. It’s the Monument to Gregory XIII by Rusconi from the early 1700s. It’s later than most of the sculpture in the basilica.
