One of the most magnificent sculptures that I have ever seen. I would rank in just below Michelangelo's David and Pieta and right with his own David. Even surrounded by awe-inspiring works, this stands alone.

The monument was truly breathtaking with all its details. I literally had to touch it to believe the amount of details craved on it. Made of Marble the size of the monument will leave you awe stricken!

This monument to Pope Urbano VIII is a wonderful example of the sculpture of Bernini, who was a genius and has left us such a great legacy of sculpture.
