This tomb was built in Rome on the site where St. Peter was martyred.  It was originally the site of the cult of Janus, the roman god associated with gates and locks. Now, it is a site that commemorates the Christian Saint to whom Jesus gave the keys to the kingdom of heaven.
Happy feast of the chair of St. Peter!
