The square was later designed by Michelangelo. The Papal Basilica of Saint Peter in the Vatican is a Late Renaissance church located within Vatican City. Designed principally by Bramante, Michelangelo, Carlo Maderno and Bernini, St Peter's is the most renowned work of Renaissance architecture and remains one of the largest churches in the world. The Appian Way was one of the earliest and strategically most important Roman roads of the ancient republic. It connected Rome to Brindisi, Apulia, in southeast Italy. Its importance is indicated by its common name, recorded by Statius: "the Appian way is the queen of the long roads" Sited along the Appian way, the Catacombs of St Callist were built after AD 150. It takes its name from the deacon Saint Callixtus, who became Pope. The arcades, where more than fifty martyrs and sixteen pontiffs are buried, form part of a complex graveyard that occupies fifteen hectares and is almost twenty km long. less
