Piazza di Spagna with the famous steps (Scalinata) leading towards the 16th-century Trinità dei Monti church is one of the iconic sights in Rome. The name derives from the Spanish embassy nearby. The stairway was built in 1723-25 to connect the church with the Spanish embassy. On the foreground is the Fontana della Barcaccia ("Fountain of the Old Boat"), designed in 1627-29.
