Spagna is our main stomping ground in Rome. For many reasons. Perhaps because we’re part English and are drawn to where gli inglesi used to come, and indeed to where Mr John Keats died. Perhaps because in truth our Roman life started in this area, it being from where we set out on that fateful first walk in May 2007. And perhaps because it is where we walk every work day with The Roman, past the Spanish Steps and down to Gran Caffè for our spuntini.
You would think, therefore, wouldn’t you, that the area had nothing left to give us. Well, dear readers, as so often with this city, you would be wrong. Because what October last year gave us was Via di San Sebastianello, one of the streets where Via Babuino meets Piazza di Spagna.
Along it are a number of current and former places of worship. We’ll start our little series about them with this one: Resurrezione de Nostro Signore Gesù Cristo dei Polacchi. Built in 1889, the Resurrection Church’s exterior can be seen below.
