Sistine Chapel - Rome, Italy The Sistine Chapel is the best-known chapel of the Apostolic Palace, the official residence of the Pope in the Vatican City. It is famous for its architecture and its decoration by Renaissance artists including Michelangelo. Michelangelo painted 12,000 sq ft of the chapel ceiling between 1508 and 1512.
