The Sistine Chapel, online

March 30, 2010

Last week I drew attention to an amazing site that provides a pan-and-zoom tour of the Church of the Holy Sepulchre in Jerusalem.  This week I have discovered that there is a similar site for the Sistine Chapel!  You’ll need a pretty fast connection for it to work, but it is magnificent.  The resolution is high, and the detail incredible.  You can even study the floor tiling, if you are so inclined (so to speak): the virtual Sistine Chapel.
