All reviews high renaissance renaissance architecture gianicolo hill great views over rome st peter worth the effort beautiful church bramante crucifix masterpiece trastevere temple legend martyrs commissioned centuries century
Worth a look if you’re heading up Gianicolo Hill in Trastevere. It was closed when I was there (5pm on a Thursday), but I could see inside through the glass doors. It’s tough to criticize any Roman church, but this was my least favorite one.
Beautiful Church at Gianicolo in Rome.
great piece of art and culture.
Inside the cloister, you can visit the Tempietto del Bramante, really a little jewel in Rome and very well preserved!
Outside the Church a marvellous view of the town of Rome.
Very few tourists see this place. It is called the Tempietto (Small Temple) It is difficult to get to. But it is worth the effort. It is thought St. Peter (The first Pope) was crucified upside down here. Several hundred years ago (1502) Donato Brammante...More
As we were wandering around Trastevere we were told of this church & decided to visit , it is a fair walk up the Gianicolo Hill with plentry of steps but worth the effort . There is a fantastic view of Ancient Rome from the...More
This amazing 'temple' by Bramante is the predecessor to neo-classical architecture for centuries to come. Located on the top of a hill away from the maddening tourist crowds, even non-architects and art history majors will be able to appreciate the beautiful proportions of this high...More
Cries à San Pietro in Montorio, a 15th century church, was built on the site where St.Peter was beloved to have been martyred. It has a beautiful and yet peaceful interior. It is located in the area of Trastevere, a lesser known area of arôme...More
The legend says that in that place S. Peter was crucified. The church has many masterpieces, which can be better enjoyed thanks to a guided tour (as it happened to me), not least a little chapel designed by Vasari with suggestion by Michelangelo. Outside the...More
Guided a family group from Donegal to the church to see the tombs of some of those Irish leaders who fled Donegal centuries ago and ended up in Rome. Well worth trying to get there as its a bit off the tourist trail - take...More
Wonderful exhibition in the Spanish centre and excellent efforts to make the attraction accessible. Please attend to the gutters in the Chiesa San Pietro. Missing in parts and choked with vegetation. It's not all about photogrammmetry. Otherwise water ingress and loss of fabric.
I made a point to drop by the church to see Bramante's High Renaissance masterpiece, Il Tempietto, a small, circular temple in one of the church's courtyards. The Spanish Embassy now controls this property and we dropped in around 4:30 on a Saturday afternoon.
Trastevere ("beyond the Tiber") is like a faded postcard, a little worn around the edges but still charming. With its wide-open piazzas, meandering streets, weathered Renaissance buildings, and overgrown personality, it's become an irresistible mecca for visitors. Trastevere is an enclave of entertainment - a rotating set of street performers entertains almost every night, and unforgettable
eateries and bars pepper its piazzas and side streets. For a trip to the past, visit the southern and western flanks of Trastevere for pockets of yesteryear, less traversed areas with a residual 1960s and 70s Roman vibe.
