Pauline Chapel, Vatican City

Even before completing “The Last Judgment” in the Sistine Chapel, Pope Paul III had chosen Michelangelo to decorate the walls of his new namesake chapel – the Pauline Chapel located in the Apostolic Palace in Vatican City and designed by Antonio da Sangallo the Younger in 1537. Used as an antechamber to the Sistine Chapel, the Pauline Chapel contains Michelangelo’s last two paintings – the “Conversion of St. Paul” (which was executed when he was 67 years-old) and the “Crucifixion of St. Peter” (70 years old). Buona visita!
