Photo: This photo was taken from the dome of Saint Peter’s Basilica. It shows the Augustinian buildings just outside Saint Peter's Square, Rome: 1. the Augustinian Curia (furthest from camera, with front and back wings facing towards the camera), and 2. St Monica's College - Colégio S. Monica - (right of centre, the building with four sides facing an internal courtyard). 3. The Augustinianum, housining the official Patristicum (patristic instutute) of the Catholic Church - the building towards the rear-right with the top of its roof cut from the photograph.
This means that these Augustinian buildings are literally on Saint Peter's Square. Geographically the site lies within Italian territory, but is granted extra-territorial privileges by the Vatican City State, which literally is as close as the other side of Via Paolo VI.
