    Churches have existed on the site of the basilica since the 4th century. The construction of the present building, on the site of the ancient Constantinian basilica, began on April 18, 1506, by order of Pope Julius II, and was completed on November 18, 1626.[6] The basilica is one of the four papal basilicas or major basilicas of Rome.

    The Chair of St. Peter is an ancient chair supposed to have been used by St. Peter, but was actually a gift of Charles the Bald, and used by several popes. It occupies an elevated position in the apse, in a bronze reliquary supported by figures of the Doctors of the Church, and illuminated by a stained glass window depicting the Holy Spirit.

    Many other artists worked for the basilica over the centuries. Among them are the sculptor Alessandro Algardi, author of the famous relief The Expulsion of Attila, a masterpiece of the Baroque, and the master of neoclassicism Antonio Canova, who sculpted the tomb of Pope Clement XIII. Some works that predate the actual construction of the basilica serve today for its ornamentation. Among them, the mosaic depicting The Storm on Lake Tiberias, better known as La Navicella, by Giotto (much retouched later), located at the foot of the temple; or the funerary monument of Pope Innocent VIII, by Antonio Pollaiuolo. However, the best known work of art of all those housed inside the basilica is the Pietà, a youthful work of Michelangelo, one of his greatest achievements, which is venerated in the first chapel on the right.
