The Sistine Chapel, built by and named after Pope Sixtus IV, is one of the many wonders of the world. Know for its beauty and amazing frescoes detailing salvation history, as well as for being the place where the Vicar of Christ is chosen in conclave, the Sistine Chapel is truly a treasure for all of humanity to experience and explore.

After five centuries of use, the Sistine Chapel finally received the renovation it deserved. The vibrancy and beauty of the work of Michelangelo was finally revealed in its splendor to the modern world. Feast your eyes on the images below…until you get there yourself!
