Vatican facts & history in brief

Map of the Vatican
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.
