This is where you can always find a lot of people sitting down on the steps, taking photos...

At the foot of the beautiful staircase you'll find a fountain in the shape of a sinking ship. The Barcaccia Fountain was designed by a father and son, Pietro and Gian Lorenzo Bernini.

The stairs will take you to the 16th-century French church, TrinitÓ dei Monti. In front of it, there's an obelisk with the same hieroglyphs as those on Piazza del Popolo.

The majestic staircase was built around 1725 by Francesco De Sanctis to celebrate the peace between Spain and France.
