Famous for hosting Michelangelo’s Moses, San Pietro in Vincoli is one of ancient Rome’s most prestigious churches and basilicas. Built in the 5th century, it also houses other famed artifacts, including the statues of Leah and Rachel. History states it was constructed to hold Saint Peter captive (hence the name) during his time in Rome and Jerusalem. In equally fascinating and macabre fashion you can take a look at the ancient chains he wore.
