Tourists tend to be drawn to the Basilica of Saint Peter in Chains in Rome to see the chains that held Peter the apostle when he was imprisoned. Peter was freed by an angel; the chains remain. Visitors also tend to admire the sculpture of Moses done by Michelangelo. But there are other interesting pieces of art in this basilica.
