    Must-see right next to the Palace of the Popes. Well worth admiring your beauty and silence. Another gift from Roman architecture to that region so beautiful and admired. It is not permitted to take pictures or do filming.

    Visited in less than half an hour but very nice, will be that I had a city guide being passing through. Maybe next time I'll spend a little more time, in fact is not very big but very nice.

    Lovely although relatively Spartan compared to the glitz of the Rome Office deiPapi. However, in a remarkable location of medieval palaces, gardens and squares.
