Sistine Chapel photos

Vatican Insider has some photos of the Sistine Chapel being prepared for the Conclave.

The Sistine Chapel is the only Catholic church that I actually did visit on my one trip to Europe. I remember thinking that it seemed small but maybe the frescoed ceiling/walls just make it appear that way. As Wikipedia states, it's ...

the best-known chapel in the Apostolic Palace, the official residence of the Pope in the Vatican City. It is famous for its architecture and its decoration that was frescoed throughout by Renaissance artists including Michelangelo, Sandro Botticelli, Pietro Perugino, Pinturicchio and others.
