This has to be up there with the Pieta for sure. This tremendous marble statue with its incredible detail is just magnificent to take in. This is one of the many gorgeous and priceless statues within the Basilica and you will not want to miss it~!

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.

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.
