In front of basilica of saint Peter in chains (in italiano :San Pietro in Vincoli). As the name would imply it has something to do with saint Peter's chains. Actually, the chains are kept here and you can see them in the basilica.
I was really impressed by this painting on the ceiling. It is absolutely beautiful.
The grave of a famous Croatian miniaturist Juraj Julije Klović (in italian known as Giorgio Giulio Clovio - Croata) is here, but you would have had heard of him only if you are really into art.
Now moving to another place you have to see when you're visiting Rome....
Everyone is taking photos...and what are you're supposed to do in front of it?
Next stop was the church Ara Celi. Beautiful church, located near the Forum Romanum. Significant to our tour because a Croatian queen Katarina is buried there.
It was a very windy day and later on it rained heavily. Not that it stopped us from seeing what we came to see.
This is the view outside the church.
Now a few photos of yet another church that we have visited that day, the first barque church in Rome. This is the church of Gesu. Its full name is the Church of the Most Holy Name of Jesus.
It was raining all day and at the end of it I was soaking wet. But you have to smile, right?
On the the most famous sights in Rome is the pantheon. It is considered to be one of the best preserved of all Roman buildings. Originally it was used as a temple of all gods of ancient Rome.
This is a very famous fountain (Fontana di Trevi) I wasn't in the mood to fight all this people just for the sake of a photograph.
Finally, this is the church of saint Jerome in Rome. It was the last church we have visited that day and the only one in which Croatian was spoken.
The church of saint Jerome is as far as I know the only Croatian church in Rome (In Croatian Crkva Svetog Jeronima)
