  • Michelangelo Merisi da Caravaggio's sword-like scene near the Church of St. Anthony of the Portuguese, a beautiful Renaissance building with a majestic tower with a white marble statue (of Our Lady) on top and a lamp lit by almost 500 years. Legend remains legend but, the certainty is that the lamp burns.

  • Fascinating turret with Madonna and light always on. Taking the streets of the Portuguese you will find me a palace with a barber's sign" raise your eyes to the sky and you will see it. Rich in suggestion and legends.

  • Among the characteristic views of Rome from the Tiber, this anxiety alleys jammed streets that you do clearly see her maintain vestiges even middle age (which is not, in fact, too unusual views the various towers of several Roman barons which emerge especially near the Stazione Termini, but the middle ages in Rome remains hidden on average): above the small Palace stands out this small but harmonious and well preserved, imposing compared to the surrounding alleys, Tower on top of which a statue of the Madonna with a lantern is linked to a legend that strongly urge you to read, which explains the name "monkey" given to the otherwise Torre dei Frangipane. Corner rich in character, in short, and impossible to not notice during a walk

  • Great location within 10 minutes of all the historical buildings and great little cafes on every street.
  • It was nice to find her and know her legend. There could well be billboards in the streets indicating its location and its history. Nearby is one of the nooks and crannies that appear in Benigni's film La Vida is beautiful, and one of Rome's best-known barbershops-hairdressers even by world film figures.

  • Old tower with a hairdresser at the bottom. A little fun with all the monkeys in the windows that originated from the legend of the monkey that took the baby with up to the ceiling and everyone thought he would throw the baby. The people prayed and the monkey came down again with the baby.

  • Along the way you will meet this high medieval tower, belonging to the noble family of frangipane, there are four floors, with the windows framed by marble exhibitions (beautiful those present on the 1st and 2nd floors). It is accessed through a majestic bugged portal, with two Corinthian columns on the sides. The tower is also given the name "Tower of the Monkey", for a legend related to this animal. Note This place is part of those painted by the Great Painter Ettore Roesler Franz in the series of "Rome Sparita", 120 watercolors the size of about 50 x75, made between 1878 and 1896. The artist with these representations, wanted to save the image of ancient and popular places of Rome that already at that time were disappearing, thanks to him so we can get the idea of how the city still showed itself in the nineteenth century. This beautiful collection (now 119 paintings are available) is present in the "Museum of Rome in Trastevere" in Piazza di S. Egidio.
