San Pietro in Vincoli

San Pietro in Vincoli (Saint Peter in Chains) is one of Rome’s first parish churches. It was built on the ruins of an imperial villa in 442 to house the chains that confined Saint Peter during his captivity in Jerusalem. This minor basilica is not only well-known because of its important religious role in Roman Catholic history, but it is also home to some of the finest art and architectural pieces in the capital city. San Pietro's nave has 20 ancient columns, and its 15th-century high altar is adorned with frescoes by Iacopo Coppi.

  • See the exquisite artwork housed in Rome’s San Pietro in Vincoli, including the colourful and elaborate frescos and Michaelangelo’s famous Moses statue, created in 1515 as part of a funeral monument for Pope Julius II.
  • Browse the souvenir shop of the basilica, which is located in the antechamber that provides access to the sacristy that contains the 1604 Domenichino painting called the Liberation of Peter.
  • Visit the tombs of Cardinal Lanfranco Margotti and Cardinal Girolamo Agucchi, former cardinal titulars of this Rome church.

The church of San Pietro in Vincoli is located off the plaza which bears the same name, Piazza San Pietro. Somewhat off the regular beaten path and with an unassuming exterior, the church is just a few blocks from popular attractions, including the Coloseum and Saint Peter's Basilica. The area is easily accessed by public transport. The closest metro station to San Pietro in Vincoli is V. Cavour on Line B of Rome's extensive subway system. From the station, visitors only need to travel for a few minutes on foot to reach the church entrance.
