Piazza di Spagna in Rome
The Spanish Square, known in Italian as Piazza di Spagna, is undoubtedly one of the most famous squares in Rome and one of the finest example of Roman Baroque style.
Piazza di Spagna has a characteristic butterfly plan that features at its center the Fontana della Barcaccia or Fountain of the Old Boat, designed by the great architects Pietro Bernini and his son, Gian Lorenzo Bernini. On the opposite side stand the famous Spanish Steps, which end up with the Church of Trinità dei Monti.
