Nice bit of history, our guide was wonderful at explaining the significance of the pinecone (fertility symbol). While we were visiting restoration was underway - interesting to witness someone taking a hammer and chisel to the side of such a historic building.

We had special after hour tickets to a Cocktail Party in the Pine Cone Courtyard. It was an amazing experience to enjoy the Vatican after hours with live music, a very nice buffet and open bar. The courtyard was aglow in soft lights and we enjoyed the experience.

Vatican just collected artifacts through time, move them from here to there. This has to be in Rome in a public place not enforced to a place accompanied by some other reproduced and or stolen artifacts from here and there.

We ate breakfast in the Pine Cone Courtyard with early entry to the Vatican. If it had not been named the Pine Cone Courtyard, it would have been easy to miss the Pine Cone. Need to read up on the art objects beforehead to maximize your visit.

This sculpture can be found in the gardens of the Vatican museums. This area is called the courtyard of the papal palaces. The name comes from the huge pinecone. Beneath the pinecone are some interesting fountains.
