Roman Curia, Vatican City

4.5
#6 of 10 in Historic Sites in Vatican City
The central governing body of the Roman Catholic church, Roman Curia takes its name from the medieval Latin word for court. The Curia's function compares loosely to other kinds of governing cabinets, but it primarily helps the church achieve its goals. The Curia's main offices are part of Vatican City. Its large section of buildings here are constantly abuzz with church business, tribunals, councils, and congregations.

    This tiny state in the heart of Rome is occupied largely by Saint Peter's square with its basilica, museums, which are connected to the basilica and gardens. Everything absolutely unmissable, Swiss guards at the entrance of the gate.

    Certainly one of the most beautiful places in the world. I read the unnecessary criticism and surveillance systems at too many law enforcement agencies which are indispensable in order to avoid or limit risks. A place not only spectacular but also of worship that everyone in life should also see to the air you breathe. Just got to remain open-mouthed. The only fact that I dare is that it would be all well and good to give a read and a good assistance to the homeless who fill the square at night. A magnificent church with poor people for stada is nonsensical nonsense.
