TRINITÀ DEI MONTI

Rome, Italy

Trinità dei Monti, Rome, Italy

Surely the most often accidentally photographed Church in the world - Trinità dei Monti stands at the top of the Spanish Steps.

The Church was founded in 1495 by the French (unusually). The Church was rebuilt in the 16th Century when the interior was redecorated by a pupil of Michaelangelo, Volterra (who was instructed to paint clothes on the nudes in the Sistine Chapel by Pope Pius IV).

The view from the platform outside the Church is spectacular, particularly looking down the narrow length of via Condotti towards the Vatican City.
