    The Sistine Chapel

    The Sistine Chapel takes its name from Pope Sixtus IV della Rovere (pontiff from 1471 to 1484) who had the old Cappella Magna restored between 1477 and 1480...

    Can we call this chapel "the Chapel of Sixtus"? sorry for silly question, just wanna know.

    and does it pronounce "sis-tin" or "sis-tain"?

    tks,

    tks,
    Cappella Sistina or Sixtine Chapel is a proper name. You cannot change it. How would Tower of Eifel sound to the French?
