Spanish Steps, full of hotels and inns which accommodated in particular artists and men of letters, was already an important touristic destination in the 16th century. Anyway, the 135 steps of the famous Spanish Square staircase, which give it its current shape, were built by Francesco De Sanctis in the early 700th century. The objective was to link the Church of Trinity to the Spanish consulate beneath, which is why it was called Spanish Square.
In the middle of the square there is the “Barcaccia”, a boat-shaped fountain sculpted by Bernini.
Nowadays Spanish Steps is one of the places where tourists go more and more frequently. In hot weather, when the staircase is decorated with wonderful flowers, they sit on its steps to rest and refresh themselves with the running water of the Barcaccia fountain.
Spanish Steps provide a backdrop for Via Dei Condotti, the prestigious street of the biggest names in the haute couture which links Spanish Square to via Del Corso, a street that is always crowded and is ideal for lovers of shopping.
