"The Tempietto" by Bramante

Literally translated as “little temple,” the Tempietto was designed in 1502 by one of the greatest High Renaissance architects, Donato Bramante. It was intended to serve a “martyrium,” or commemorative tomb, marking the exact spot of St. Peter’s martyrdom. The Tempietto was commissioned by the Spanish monarchs Ferdinand and Isabella and is in the courtyard of the church of San Pietro in Montorio in Rome, Italy. Buona visita!
