About Vatican City State
Map is showing the walled enclave of Vatican City within the City of Rome, Italy.
Vatican City, officially Vatican City State, is the smallest internationally recognized independent state in the world, with an area of about 44 hectares (0.44 km²; 110 acres), and a population of 850. The Papal State is ruled by the Bishop of Rome—the Pope.
The territory of Vatican City is part of Mons Vaticanus (Vatican Hill), and of the adjacent former Vatican Fields. The Vatican Hill lies northwest of the Tiber and is not one of the traditional Seven Hills of Rome. In this territory St. Peter's Basilica, the Apostolic Palace, the Sistine Chapel, and the Vatican Museums were built, along with the rest of other palaces and gardens which make up Vatican City.
The most sacred place in Christendom is a UNESCO World Heritage Site , it contains a unique collection of artistic and architectural masterpieces from Bramante, Raphael, Michelangelo, Bernini and Maderno. The St. Peter's Basilica, erected over the tomb of St Peter the Apostle, is the largest church building in the world.
