A look at the most famous window in the world

Before this window, millions of people have cheered, sung and prayed year after year, generation after generation. It's the Pope's studio window, which is a short distance from his bedroom. Pope John XXIII began a tradition where every Sunday the Angelus is led from here. The last window, to the right is the Pope's bedroom. The eyes of the world where set on that window on April 2nd, 2005 when John Paul II passed away. Then on May 1, 2005 Benedict XVI appeared before this window for the first time.
