Raphael Rooms

View the beautiful frescos painted by the young Raphael which were for a suite of apartments for Pope Julius 11. There is no doubt that the Rooms represent one of Raphael’s greatest masterpieces. These environments have allowed the artist to compete with the most diverse subjects and to adopt new solutions each time. It can certainly be said that, if the Sistine Chapel embodies the heart of the Vatican as a spiritual authority, the Raphael Rooms are instead the political heart of the papacy.
