Vatican Hill

Excerpted from Wikipedia, the free encyclopaedia.

Since long before the founding of Christianity, one of the hills on the side of the Tiber opposite the traditional seven hills of Rome has been called the Vatican Hill (in Latin, Vaticanus Mons).

It may have been the site of an Etruscan town called Vaticum.

It has, for some centuries been the headquarters of the Holy See and, since 1929, that of the State of the Vatican City.
