TEMPIETTO AT SAN PIETRO IN MONTORIO

More sculpture than building, this architecturally significant temple was built on the spot of Saint Peter’s crucifixion. Commissioned by the King Ferdinand, the construction probably started around 1510 under the direction of Donato Bramante. Modern critics see this small, circular “tempietto” as the prototype for the greater Basilica of Saint Pietro in the Vatican.
