More beauty from the Vatican and Rome

Santa Maria in Traspontina

Santa Maria in Traspontina

Remember that street that I said it leads to the Vatican? In this street, on the right side, there is a beautiful church - they are all beautiful. It's called Santa Maria in Traspontina.
Click on the title and you will go to the page on wikipedia that tell about that.

St. Peter's Basilica

Papal Altar
The Papal Altar and the baldachin. It's amazing, its beauty and grandiouseness!
Only the Pope can celebrate Mass there and is on top of the tomb of St. Peter, the first Pope.

St. Peter's tomb
See here the tomb. It's below.
It has a lot of significance!

At last!

I know, but it's better late then never. Here they are my holidays pictures.

Do you know where this street is leading to? Our hearts are already burning with anticipation.

The hapiness that we feel here. The first step is to go through a scanner as in the airports, then we must get between two guards because lots of turists forget they are in a sacred space and dress almost to naked. I saw some people sent away. Not the muslim women because they are always properly dressed.

Going to the Basilica we can see these handsome men.

We feel so little. First time I went to the Vatican, my girl that is now 11 was a little girl on my husband's shoulders. The moment we went in, she couldn't help say: Wow! Yes, that what we feel.

It's everything so grand.

Here we only can enter to go to Mass.

It's a special place, even for turists.
Looks like our hearts will burst with that light.

Such a blessed place.

For some days, I will post some pictures of the Vatican and Rome.


Here is the Piazza Navona.

Sorry for the delay

Sorry for the delay on posting. I hope something will be done at the weekend. My husband has most of my pictures in his computer and he's not here. When he comes back, he will give me and I will post them - I hope.
Until then.
