Cortile della biblioteca im Vatikan

The Cortile della Biblioteca is one of the three Vatican Courts built between 1817 and 1822. At this time another cross corridor to the existing one was built. This one is called Braccio Nuovo. It was built by Raphael Stern.  The Braccio Nuovo divides another part of the Cortile della Pigna, creating another small courtyard, the Cortile della Biblioteca. The Cortile della Biblioteca is the third of the Vatican Courts.
