The backdrop for the tour of history is the Spanish-Moorish fortress at Concepcion Hill, the highest hill to protect the city. This site was used for a Roman temple, a Muslim citadel, a medieval castle, and location of the siren warning of Civil War ombings. The top of the hill offers the best view of the city and the harbor

/Ride to the top and you are in for a real treat.

November Day in Cartagena, Spain

MUSEL VATICAN CITY........... Roma Vaticano


Vatican City
Look from Vatican City to Historic Roma
Home of the St. Peter’s Basilica, the Vatican Museums and the Sistine Chapel, the population of 800 non-permanent residents live in Vatican City. These are priests, nuns, guards, high-ranking dignitaries and, of course, the pope.

During the mid-19th century, this area covered some 17,000 sq mi, however, during the next decade and the struggle for Italian unification, the majority of these states officially became a part of the country of Italy.

The St. Peter’s Basilica is built on Vatican Hill, across the Tiber river from the historic center of Rome. This was the site where Saint Peter, the chief apostle, died a martyr and where he was buried in 64 AD.

The travertine front facade of the basilica was created by Carlo Maderno, who slightly altered Michelangelo's original design by widening the narthex to 376 feet. Maderno also placed the massive columns against the walls instead of in front of the building, as Michelangelo had intended.

The basilica has a surface area of 496 feet, enough space to accommodate 60,000 visitors. It is covered by a coffered barrel vault ceiling and a huge central dome. 

Holy Water

Vatican Museums are made of awesome works of art by the Art Masters

Sorry, but no photos were allowed taken in the Sistine Chapel
