  • The Church is relatively young and in its current form only in the 16th and 17th centuries created - it crowns the Spanish steps. The Interior is not just spectacular, but quite nice. If you've been here above is...

  • Thank you for your help and a long time to come and look for Google. But the Trinity Cathedral with his wife back by people all of a sudden you're not outside of us, after all, tend to assist you with any queries at the top of the stairs-thank you for that. After returning home for a few days or legs cut nuts nuts, though the arguments many people taking pictures of hitchhiking from place to place South Korea offering to take the tourists happy.

  • on Rome, arrived at the top of the stairs of the place of Spain. Otherwise the Church is, or at least sober next to the Baroque exuberance of the churches of Rome. Worship in french.

  • This is one of the greatest historical and artistic place in the world. These are the great stairs in world, from piazza di Spagna you can go upstairs and when you arrive in a terrace in front of the church of trinità dei monti you will see Roma center, on Christmas time is very remarkable. If you want it is possible to arrive to Pincio park, a place where you will have a sightseeing of all Rome. This stairs was building in XVIII century by Francesco de Sanctis.
  • While relatively modern (16th century) it has some wonderful art work. Even though the front half of the church is closed except to worshippers during Mass there was much to see. In one accessible chapel is Daniele da Volterra's "The Assumption" a stunning work in the Mannerist style from 1550. Another chapel has his "Deposition" (1548). Da Volterra was a pupil of Michelangelo. A further chapel's altarpiece is "The Baptism of Christ" by Naldini (1580). Note that as of January 2018 the church is not open until midday on a Friday.
  • Stunning view from just outside the church, and worth a walk along the top road that runs by it. The church inside is in the French style and not as impressive as the setting.
  • Pretty great view, the church has some nice features but being barred off it is hard to look at many of them
  • Outside view is much better than the inside and heads up you can't get inside with shorts
