In the center of the catholic world

Not only the catholics but also many others are following intensively what happens in Vatican during the next weeks. Pope Benedict XVI surprised the world and said he will step down on 28 February, something that has not happened in six hundred years.

There can not be much better time to post some pictures from Vatican and St. Peter’s Basilica, the biggest church in the world, taken 1997 and 2011.
