St. Peter's Square , an architectural masterpiece of Bernini ( 1656-67 ) , is an immense ellipse of 240 meters wide. In the background, beyond a great rectangular churchyard , raises the facade of the basilica , dominated by the imposing Michelangelo's dome . The two side semicircles are formed by towering colonnades to quadruple row of Doric columns , defining three lanes , of which the median wider. In total there are 284 columns and 88 pilasters. The entablature is crowned by 140 statues of saints and great coats of arms of Alexander VII . At the bottom right of the porch is the Bronze Door of the Vatican Palace .

At the center of the square , between two great fountains, stands an obelisk without hieroglyphics 25.50 meters high , resting on the backs of four bronze lions , due to Prospero Antichi, at the corners of the high pedestal .
