Tomb of Pope Paul VI (d.1978)

Tomb of Pope Paul VI (d.1978) in the crypt of St. Peter's Basilica. The humble tomb obeys the wishes of the pope expressed in his will: "I would like it to be in the real earth, with a humble sign to indicate the place and to invite Christian piety. No monument for me."
