The Corridors & Bibliotheque
Vatican City, Vatican

Julius II an his architect Donato Bramante had the idea to connect the buildings in the North of St. Peter’s, adding two longitudinal wings around a magnificent courtyard - Hall of Ligorio on the West and Corridor of Bramante to the East.

The Biblioteca Apostolica was founded in 1451 and permantly enlarged thereafter. Sixtus V built the wing to the Belvedere Courtyard including the large reading hall.
With 50.000 manuscripts, 7.000 incunabula, thousands of prints and more than one million books it is one of the most significant libraries in the world.

At the North end of that impressive and huge building you will find the entrance to the Vatican Museums.

The completion of the chapel’s decoration was made by Giuliano della Rovere, nephew of Sixtus IV and later pope Julius II. Michelangelo Buonarotti was the one to fresc the vault (1508-1512), which is the most important painting cycle in the world. Twenty years later Michelangelo also did the todays’ famous painting of ‘The Last Judgement’.
