  • Inside a courtyard, in the area of the Royal Academy of Spain, it really is a small gem of architecture. It was not realized as expected by Donato Bramante, who imagined it inserted in a concentric courtyard, and therefore circular, like the plant of the temple, but you can still appreciate it for its perfect shape, for the formal research that, you see, the architect it does not abandon for this reason that it looks like a miniature against the much larger factory of St. Peter'. The temple has a circular base, with a cylindrical base around which a row of columns revolves. Built out of devotion to the King of Spain, it recalls the martyrdom of St. Peter that would take place right on the hill of the Janiculum. The cell has a diameter of about four meters and from the crypt, through a grate, you look at the domed roof. Strongly adhering to classic modules, it is one of the buildings considered a symbol of geometric perfection

  • The Templete of the church of San Pietro in Montorio is little known because it is located on a secondary access road. By following the address indicated on the gps (via Garibaldi 33) we get off the road on a couple of occasions. The most comfortable access is through the little question that is called as the church, which overlooks directly to the Royal Academy of Spain, since the entrance is made through this building for free. It was built by Bramante (author of the project of St. Peter's Basilica of the Vatican) in 1502 as a commemoration of the takeover of Granada. It is worth visiting if you are an architecture lover, although its small proportions are perfect and balanced.

  • The temple of San Pietro in Montorio is a jewel that very few know, you have to go up the Trastevere and instead of going towards the monument to Garibaldi, take the opposite direction, towards the Spanish Academy, next to the Church of San Pietro in Montorio and... ringing the bell at the Academy. We opened the door to a very friendly lady who works at the academy and who guided us to the temple, we were amazed at everything that told us about details within the temple that would have gone unnoticed if it had not been for her knowledge. Then it allowed us to reach the terrace of the Academy, with a natural pasture floor and from where you have a very beautiful view of Rome. The Templete itself is the work of the architect Donato di Pascuccio d'Antonio or Donato di Angelo di Antonio, known as Bramante, in 1502 and also the author of the project of St. Peter's Basilica. The function of this temple was to be a memorial building since the Catholic Monarchs ordered it to be built to Bramante to commemorate the takeover of Granada in 1492, and it was built on the place where according to tradition st. Peter was martyred. Admission is free.
