Visitors, pilgrims, tourists need to respect the former pope and to leave his grave in peace. They need to venerate God and not to walk around graves under the church with their cameras.

The final resting place of Pope Giovanni Paolo II is below the Basilica, reached by stairs. It is a beautiful tribute and memorial to his legacy.

It's amazing that you can get up close to these magnificent tombs in St.Peter's Basilica. I expected massive queues but it was surprisingly easy to move around the church, maybe because it's so vast.

Such a respectful tribute to a great Pope. I knew people honored this man and the work that he did while Pope but it was heartwarming to see so many people still showing their respect.

I love this Pope, maybe because he was Polish too. But no, he was a wonderful man. This is a beautiful tribute to him. There was a beam of sunlight coming thru a small window on the roof shining on it.

The tomb itself is simple an adorned with just his name and small sculptures at the corners, adding to its beauty. Displayed beneath a large painting, it received a direct beam of sunlight at the right time of day/year. A fitting tribute to whom many...More
