The Spanish Step

Piazza di Spagna The first thing that strikes one in Piazza di Spagna is the charming, monumental flight of steps, built in 1772, whose sinuous lines harmoniously follow the slope of the hill. At its feet is the graceful fountain called "La Barcaccia" by Bernini. At the top of Spanish step is the church of Trinità dei Monti, with its two cupolas (1495), and in front of its façade is an obelisk, which was taken from the Sallustian gardens in 1789.
