Vatican City walls – Travel Photos

Vatican City walls? For those of you who still don’t know, Vatican City happens to be the smallest independent country in the world. Below, I pictured the massive Vatican city walls that enclose the tiny state, which even has a “mini border” of sorts. Another interesting fact? In order to be part of the Swiss Army (protects the Pope), you must be a male virgin – or so my tour guide told me. I believe him (although believing the guards who say they are all virgins is a different story)
