The Vatican City's history as the Catholic Church's capital began with the construction of St Peter's Basilica back in the 4th century A.D. The basilica was built over St. Peter's grave in Rome. Over the years, this area developed into a popular pilgrimage location and commercial site. However, following the move of the papal court to France back in 1309, the area was abandoned. After the Church's return to Italy in 1377, famous landmarks such as the new St. Peter's Basilica, Sistine Chapel, and the Apostolic Palace were built within the Vatican borders.
