The building will host Pope Benedict XVI, offering him a substantial four-story modern home complete with contemporary chapel, garden and a roof terrace looking out from a rise dominated by the Holy See's TV transmission tower. Pope Benedict XVI began a week-long spiritual retreat out of the public eye on Monday ahead of his resignation on February 28 with the field of candidates to succeed him still wide open.
