Description

The Church of St Charles at the Four Fountains and the Monastery were built by Borromini. They were the first in Rome to be dedicated to St Charles Borromeus, who had been canonized in 1610. The Church of St Charles at the Four Fountains was also the first church that Borromini built in Rome. It belongs to the Spanish Trinitarian monastery. The Church of St Charles at the Four Fountains is small but the layout and the proportions were inspired by those of St Peter's Basilica.
