Trinità dei Monti

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.
