The original basilica, built by Constantine and traditionally believed to be built over the tomb of Apostle Peter, was to become the site of a new church. The first stones were laid in the 1500s, and took more than a century to complete.
The most famous church in Christendom and the largest basilica in the world is both an architectural and artistic wonder. It is capped by Michelangelo's magnificent Renaissance dome.
This ¾" thick wooden replica of St. Peter's Basilica is handcrafted in the U.S. to reflect its historical features. It can set neatly on a shelf, wainscoting, or window/door trim to remind you of a special place you've visited or dream of visiting someday. A short description is written on the back.
