Vatican City State: History and Residences
 
As there is no general discussion topic about the history of the state of Vatican City I thought of creating one.
In this topic, facts and curiosities about Vatican City and the history of the Popes can be discussed.
Information on the residences of the Popes can also be discussed in this topic.
