Vatican City rises on the right bank of the Tiber, on the foothills of Monte Mario and Gianicolo. In Roman times, this was the site of the Gardens of Nero, and the Circus, where thousands of Christians were martyred. (Saint Peter met his death here circa 67 A. D.). It is the world center of the Catholic Church. Each year, thousands of Catholics and non-Catholics stream here from all parts of the world. Not only is the Vatican a great spiritual center, but also rich in priceless art treasures of the Renaissance, and of antiquity.
Politically, Vatican City is a completely autonomous small state within the Italian Republic. The « Lateran Pact » of 1929 established its independence. It has its own radio station, railroad station, newspaper, and diplomatic representation in the major capitals. Although it has no army, the « Swiss-Guards », who are the guards of the Pope, patrol the gates of the city day and night. The legislative, executive, and judiciary branches of the government are under the full authority of the Pope, and through the medium of the Cardinal Secretary of State, he participates in international affairs. Vatican City has its own stamps, and its own money, which is valid throughout Italy.
