The Collegiate Church of St. Peter, an important Anglican worship site in London after St. Paul's Cathedral, home to the crowning of England's sovereigns and burial of important figures. The Abbey of Westminster was built between 1045 and 1050 by Edward the Confessor who undertook the construction to keep faith in a vote he had made while still in exile in Normandy: If his family had returned to the throne, England, he would have made a pilgrimage to Rome. Edward discovered a site where St. Peter's worship existed at Thorney Island on the Thames. It was the place where in 616 a small sanctuary was built after a fisherman had a vision of St. Peter. Since then every year, on June 29th, fishermen of the Thames bring Saint Peter a salmon, which is received by the Abbot of Westminster. Around 970, San Dunstano built a monastery of Benedictine monks to whom the sanctuary was entrusted. In 1045, King Edoardo added a large donation of land around and began building a magnificent Romanesque church that was consecrated on December 28, 1065. In 1245 it was rebuilt in the Gothic style. In 1376 the aisle was completely rebuilt by architect Henri Yevele, who also cared for the construction of the Tower of London and the Palace of Westminster. In the abbey church, starting with Aroldo II of England, brother-in-law of Edward the Confessor, all the coronations of the realities were held, except Edward V and Edward VIII, and where most of the sovereigns were buried until 1760. Precious are the 10 bells of the abbey, famous for playing all the royal family's historical events. The main facade of St. Peter's Collegiate Church in Westminster is westward oriented and was built in the 15th century. Preceded by a wrought-iron wrought-iron enclosure, it is close to the two bell towers built between 1722 and 1745 by the British architect Nicholas Hawksmoor in Gothic style, hosting the Bell Ensemble concert in 1971 ; At the center of the façade is the stumped portal, alongside the statues of Truth, Justice, Mercy, and Peace. Above them, in a gallery there are the statues of ten Christian martyrs of the twentieth century. At the center of the facade opens a large polifora ogivale, enclosed by a polychrome glass. The facade of the left arm of the transept, however, is salient, inspired by French models. In the lower part, the three great crackers open, each of which is surmounted by a ghimberga; above the portals there are triphors and, upstairs, a loggia that opens with a double. At the central nave of the transept, there is the large circular rosette; the transept facade ends up, with a triangular tympanum decorated with Gothic motifs; on the sides there are the rampant supporting arches. The inside of the collegiate church of St. Peter is a Latin cross and has three naves, with a length of 156 meters and a total width of 34 meters; the vault of the central nave, dating back to 1506, reaches 34 meters. From the western portal you access the church: you immediately meet the Chapel of St. George. On the left is visible what is considered to be the oldest portrait of an English sovereign who has come to us: it is depicted by Richard II and dates back to the fourteenth century. Along the central nave, as soon as you enter the church, you see the tomb of the Unknown Soldier, a little further on, a tombstone remembers Winston Churchill. Later the tombs of some 19th century architects and David Livingstone explorer are located. In the left nave stands the monument of William Pitt the Younger. In the transept, to the right and to the left of the tall altar, is occupied by the burials of historical figures, including some saints.
