Spanish Steps apartments

The Spanish Steps are the longest and widest staircase in Europe, located between Piazza di Spagna at the base and Piazza Trinità dei Monti at the top. Initially the piazza was divided into two parts, the French Square (because the French ambassador resided there - Trinità dei Monti was patroned by the French government) and the Spanish Square. The steps themselves, however, came to be called Spanish Steps after the Spanish Square (which was called Spanish because the Spanish embassy to the Holy See was - and is - located there). For a while, in the 17th century, the entire Piazza di Spagna was considered Spanish territory. Apparently foreigners unwittingly trespassing into the area could even find themselves all of a sudden to be soldiers in the Spanish army.

At the base of the Piazza is the Fontana della Barcaccia ("Fountain of the Old Boat") a Baroque Fountain built in 1627-29, credited to Pietro Bernini, father of a more famous son, Gian Lorenzo Bernini, who is recently said to have collaborated on the decoration. At the corner of the square is the house where once lived and died English poet John Keats, now a museum dedicated to his memory, full of memorabilia of the English Romantic generation.
