The Vatican Museums are the most important museum complex in Italy. Millions of people, every year, come from every corner of the world to admire the works present in Vatican City. Within these walls are the works of important artists, known throughout the world. In its rooms are the masterpieces of masters such as the inventor Leonardo Da Vinci, the gloomy Caravaggio and the imposing Titian. Not to mention Michelangelo Buonarroti, the undisputed flag of the Italian Renaissance.
The part relating to the Egyptian period is very important, albeit less known. The Vatican museums are organized around 54 very rich galleries and different sections. Among all the galleries we mention the most famous: The Tapestry Gallery, set up in 1838. The tapestries are exhibited in the Vatican Pinacoteca and collect the works of the New School and the Old School. They date back to the 1500s and, mainly made in Brussels, they recall works by Raphael and his pupils. It was the year 1531 when they were exhibited to the public for the first time, right in the famous Sistine Chapel.
The Gallery of Geographical Maps, is located along the path that leads to the Sistine Chapel. It represents one of the most evocative spaces of the Vatican museum sector. Meters and meters, 120 to be precise, of maps representing the Italian regions, including the most important ports of the time. The cards were made between 1581 and 1583. Finally, the Vatican museums are made up of different sections: Pinacoteca, Raphael’s Rooms, Gregorian Etruscan Museum, Missionary-Ethnological Museum and, the famous, Sistine Chapel.
