The Sistine Chapel is the residence of the pope, in Vatican City. Originally known as the ‘Great Chapel’, the chapel was named after Pope Sixtus IV, who restored it in the 15th century. To this day, it is the site of the papal conclave, the process by which a new pope is chosen.
The fame of the Sistine Chapel lies mainly in the frescos that decorate the interior, especially the Sistine Chapel ceiling and The Last Judgment by Michelangelo.
