This is an commemorative tomb dedicated to St. Peter. It is located in the courtyard of the Church of San Pietro in Montorio in Trastevere. Built by Donato Bramante in the early 16th century, the monument is the shape of a dome structure with a cylindrical body and is considered a masterpiece of Italian High Renaissance. Well worth taking a look when visiting the church.

This small temple is indeed hidden inside the convent, but it is worth the effort of climbing the hill and finding the entrance. The proportions are simply majestic.

Bramante's Il Tempietto is a completely harmonious building. It is small and perfect pec of architecture. You can find it in the courtyard of San Pietro in Montrio, which is also church worth visiting. They are close to Trastevere's old streets.

One morning I walked up Via Garibaldi and took the steps up to the church of San Pietro in Montorio. When I got there, the doorway that leads to the Tempietto was blocked off by fencing and orange tape, and there was a scissors lift visible inside the courtyard. I went into the Spanish Academy entrance to the right, where they had exhibition space that led to a nice little multi-room museum about the Tempietto, and then led into its courtyard. Whatever they were doing with the lift, they hadn’t started doing yet, and I was able to go inside the Tempietto and look around it. The floor is wonderful Cosmati work and the ceiling is a dome painted light blue. Very charming. San Pietro in Montorio itself felt dark and dull in comparison—there were no lights on and the place was very empty—but I’m glad I’ve finally seen it. The pews and center aisle were all covered with drapes of blue velvet, something I haven’t seen anywhere before.

You can see from outside through the gate on Piazza San Pietro in Montorio... as I saw it for the first time nearly 50 years ago... Or you can just walk in and see it from every angle in all its magnificent architectural perfection by entering the Real Academia de España, where you can also visit a beautiful cloister and art gallery, and into the small yard where the Tempietto stands. It's free, even if it is worth a million!

The Tempietto of Bramante is small but exquisite, built over the supposed site of St. Peter’s crucifixion. We were delighted to find it so well cared for and respectfully displayed by the Spanish Royal Academy, Real Academia de España in Rome. From the piazza in front of the Chiesa San Pietro in Montorio, enter through the door on the right into the Spanish Academy. Walk through one cloister and into a second cloister to find the Tempietto. The staff were watchful but welcoming. We also enjoyed the special exhibit in a very nice modern gallery in the Academy.

Bramante’s Tempietto is hidden in the cloister of S Pietro in Montorio just uphill from Trastevere. Once this was known as the Janiculum Hill, dedicated to Janus. It was thus an appropriate location for this Renaissance Master to place his take on a round classical temple. He used 12 granite Roman columns and based his proportions on them. Also it was a exercise in modelling his ideas for the future dome of St Peter’s.

A must for anyone interested in the Renaissance Open all day, except Monday. Don’t miss early church next
door with some special altarpieces.

Excellent, and the frescoes in the courtyard before you get to it are nice as well. Very friendly staff. Note that this is next door to (and not actually part of) the church next door, so the hours are not the same.

Our B & Bs hostess suggested we visit this exhibit right next to San Pietro in Montoriowhere you will see Bramnte's design of a first circular church where all columns and domes are architectural firsts. While we were there, a group of students was taking a lesson in proportions from their professor. Unfortunately, their exhibition was closed until October 3rd but it was still worth seeing. Located in a building adjacent to the Spanish Embassy in the Accademia of Art.

Bramante’s masterpiece is located inside a building courtyard, and when we first visited 20+ years ago, the surrounding building was decrepit and depressing. Now the building has been rehabilitated, polished to a tee, and turned into an elegant arts center and exhibition space, all thanks to the Real Academia de España en Roma.

Meanwhile, the Tempietto itself remains as marvelous as ever. We love the rhythm of the severe Doric columns, the gold-flecked pastel blue ceiling, the floor mosaics.
