Vatican City, officially the State of Vatican City, is the independent city-state of the Holy See, an enclave within Rome, Italy. The State of Vatican City, also known as the Vatican, became independent from Italy with the Lateran Treaty (1929), and it is a separate territory under “full ownership, exclusive domination, and authority. and sovereign jurisdiction ”of the Holy See, itself a sovereign entity under international law, which maintains the temporal, diplomatic and spiritual independence of the city-state. With an area of 49 hectares (121 acres) and a population of approximately 825, it is the smallest sovereign state in the world in terms of area and population.
As ruled by the Holy See, the Vatican City State is an ecclesiastical or priestly-monarchical state (a type of theocracy) headed by the Pope who is the Bishop of Rome and the head of the Catholic Church . The highest officials of the state are all members of the Catholic clergy of various national origins. After the papacy of Avignon (1309-1437), the popes mainly resided at the Apostolic Palace in present-day Vatican City, although they occasionally reside at the Quirinal Palace in Rome or elsewhere.
In Vatican City there are religious and cultural sites such as St. Peter’s Basilica, the Sistine Chapel and the Vatican Museums. They feature some of the most famous paintings and sculptures in the world. The unique economy of Vatican City is supported financially by donations from the faithful, the sale of postage stamps and souvenirs, entrance fees to museums and the sale of publications.
