If you have an interest in decorative art and 19th-century furniture then Via dei Coronari, one of the city's most prestigious streets is where you need to be. While you are here, marvel at the stunning architecture of some of the old buildings, such as the Lancellotti Palazzo and the church of St. Salvatore in Lauro. This place of worship dates back to the 16th century. On this road, find architecture from the Middle Ages and Renaissance and Baroque periods. This road has a fascinating history. The shops that once occupied the area sold rosaries and other religious items to pilgrims fleeing Rome. It is also said that no.122 Via de Coronari is where the Renaissance painter Raphael lived.
