This is one of so many things to see in St. Peter's Basilica. Here you will find a statue of the patron saint Peter, for which the Basilica is named after. It is located near the centre of St. Peter's on the inside pillar in the centre of the nave just in front of the altar and Baldacchino
The St. Peter's Statue was built by Arnolfo di Cambio over 800 years ago and what makes this monument particularly interesting is how the toe and foot are not only shiny but have been worn down by centuries of visitors touching and kissing them while offering up prayer and asking for blessing from St. Peter.
It's worth your time finding this statue while browsing through St. Peter's looking at the number of interesting, important and beautiful things to see here.
