Many rate St. Peter's Basilica and as the most beautiful building ever made. For centuries, this basilica has been the center for the Catholic faith and it is regarded as one of the holiest Christian sites of all. Though the video is secular in approach, it highlights the church of the Pontiff - its history, architecture, and beauty - in a good manner.
"..The history of St. Peter's Basilica dates back almost 2000 years. The basilica is named after Saint Peter, one of the twelve apostles of Jesus and according to the tradition, the first Bishop of Rome. Saint Peter is therefore the first in the line of the papal succession."
