The Sistine Chapel is situated at the southern end of the Vatican Museums and north of St. Peter's Basilica, the building is of no great architectural interest (rectangle in shape 40.93 meters long by 13.41 meters wide), however the masterpiece artwork within the building created by Michelangelo Buonarroti (1475-1564) is what has made the Sistine Chapel world famed and a must see for anyone visiting Europe.
