  • Remember that Rome has more than 900 churches. This is very good mainly for being on an elevation in the Plaza de España and the views are beautiful day and night with the lights. Therefore, do not hesitate to climb, enter to see her and contemplate the views. The photos with Rome in the background are beautiful from there.

  • The Trinita dei Monti (Trinity of the Mounts) is a Roman Catholic Church atop the Spanish Steps. It was built in the 1500s and belongs to the French government. This church is impressive because of it...  more »
  • Situated Piazza della Trinita' Dei Monti, at the top of the scalinata di Spagna a chiesa Trinità dei Monti was built at the will of Louis XII, king of France. The oldest part of the church was built in the early 16th century in Gothic style. A more recent building from the mid-16th century in Renaissance style has been added to the Gothic nave. This new building was covered by a vault in a cradle and bounded by a façade decorated with two symmetrical bell towers. In these bell towers are two watches, one conventional and the other solar. Inside, among other reasons of interest, in the first chapels are seen frescoes of the sixteenth century of Daniele da Volterra including the Deposition of the Cross. It is very worth getting in and the views of this place are magnificent.

  • Two beautiful towers on top of the hill framing the church, built 1500’s. These twins became later inspirations to other modern buildings. The Spanish steps are right in front, b. 1775, spilling into plaza below. Bernini (father) fountain right on plaza, ties the them to an earlier Roman times (river steps).
  • The church is in such good memorable place, so I think many of the tourists forget to visit it. Better to go inside. Find some chill, when it's extremely hot in the street.
  • Just above the Spanish steps, this church is a must!! It's free and you can see the Fresco's inspired by Michelangelo, painted by his student
  • I love this place because you can sit down with people from all over the world and meanwhile enjoy the sun or the fact that there are no cars. Particularly it is amazing on Spring when they put on the steps beautiful flowers!
  • Picturesque church which embellishes even more the gorgeous scenery
