The Papal palace is located just next to St. Peter's square. While impressive on its own, it's dwarfed by the sheer magnitude of the square and basilica.

A huge palace for the Pope...but the current Pope does not reside in the palace as he is much more frugal and stays at another location of much less grandeur.

This is the area of the papal apartments where over the years many popes have lived and died but don't look for Pope Francis here. He lives in a much simpler place.
