The Sistine Chapel

Included in the tour of the Vatican Museum, it is one of the most famous cultural and artistic treasures of Vatican City and the world. Dedicated to Maria Assunta in Cielo, it was built between 1475 and 1481, at the time of Pope Sisto IV della Rovere, from which it took its name. It is known for being the place where the conclave and the official ceremonies of the Pope are held and for being decorated with frescoes which cover the vault and the wall of the Last Judgment above the altar by Michelangelo Buonarroti. The walls are decorated with works by other great Italian artists (Botticelli, Perugino, Pinturicchio, etc.). Initially Michelangelo had been commissioned to paint only twelve figures, the Apostles, but at the end of works there were more than three hundred works.
