The Basilica di San Pietro in Vincoli was founded in the 5th century to preserve a holy relic; the string that tied St. Peter’s body when he was arrested in Jerusalem. In addition to the string, you can admire one of the most beautiful sculptures by Michelangelo: Moses, from 1515. Legend says that when he finished the sculpture he said ”perche non parli?” (why can’t you talk?) since the work was so perfect that just needed to speak to be real.
