LOOK: 100,000 LED lights brighten up the majestic St. Peter’s Basilica

Visitors to the St. Peter’s Basilica in Rome have always been treated to the sight of the finest art adorning its high ceilings. But because of the distance and the poor lighting, it has been easier for students to study the 500-year-old structure in pictures, rather than strain one’s neck for hours trying to appreciate the minute details on the dimly lit domes.

Now, the treat is getting sweeter, as Germany-based OSRAM light company completed the much-needed lighting upgrade in St. Peter’s Basilica. They traded the dome’s old halogen lights with around 780 LED luminaries, which house about 100,000 LED lights. The project came after OSRAM successfully completed similar installments in the Sistine Chapel and St. Peter’s Square.
