The church of the Santissima Trinità dei Monti, often called merely the Trinità dei Monti is a Roman Catholic late Renaissance titular church in Rome, central Italy. It is best known for its commanding position above the Spanish Steps which lead down to the Piazza di Spagna. The church and its surrounding area are the responsibility of the French State.
In 1494, Saint Francis of Paola, a hermit from Calabria, bought a vineyard from the papal scholar and former patriarch of Aquileia, Ermolao Barbaro, and then obtained the authorization from Pope Alexander VI to establish a monastery for the Minimite Friars. In 1502, Louis XII of France began construction of the church of the Trinità dei Monti next to this monastery, to celebrate his successful invasion of Naples. Building work began in a French style with pointed late Gothic arches, but construction lagged.

  • This is Monty's Fountain on the edge of the church, a short walk from Piazza Vittorio Emanuele II to the Church of Santa Maria Maggiore. It is shaped like a combination of three mountains and a cylinder. Standing in a dignified manner as if to get in the way in the middle of the aisle.

  • Beside the Church of Santi Vito et Modesto. By Pietro Lombardi in 1927, it traces the mountain which is the crest of the district. The fountains around this town are soothing.

  • A little west of Piazza Vittorio Emanuele II, you can get to San Vito Street with the Arc de Triomphe of Gallienus. There is a Monty fountain at the side of the church at the entrance to the east side of the street. There are three things like a semi-cylindrical rocket, and a thing like an even higher semi-cylindrical rocket bullet comes out in the center. There is a star-like pattern in the side of the rocket, and a little water trickles from there. There is a hole in the bottom, but whether it is the whole water or the aim has been removed, the pavement of the cobblestones around the fountain was wet and the traces continued for a long time. Three RPGs seem to mean the hills of Cherio, the Viminale and the Esquire, but it is unclear what the semi-cylindrical shape of the middle is going to mean.

  • Cute great fountain to drink fresh water and close to Santa Maria Maggiore is the porta magica di piazza Vittorio.

  • Fontanella-site mail in 1927 inspired in its shape to the emblem of the neighborhood that hosts it ... precisely the Monti.
