Donna Olimpia, a powerful member of the Pamphilij family, created in the seventeenth century "The Garden of Delights of Donna Olimpia" also known as "The Secret Garden" or "The Baths of Donna Olimpia", in the area that encloses the Church of Santa Maria in Cappella and the old Hospital, right downstream to the Tiber Island, where in ancient times there was the most important river port of Rome: the Port of Ripa Grande.
The large Garden, in the middle of which is the Fountain of the Snail by Gian Lorenzo Bernini, has an incredible variety of flower and fruit trees, as well as rare floral and aromatic plants. Overlooking the Tiber river, Donna Olimpia also built a marvelous Belvedere with a clubhouse: these structures have been shown in paintings and prints, among which the famous scenes of Gaspar Van Wittel (also known as Vanvitelli).

This was truly a lovely experience. Make this a part of your “to see and to do” list while you are in Rome.
A one of kind opportunity to live The Eternal City with all of our senses at once. Thank you!
The concerts were intimate experiences of talented musicians and singers, splendid music and the vibrant spaces of the churches where the concerts took place.
A superb way to spend an hour in this wonderful city
Intellectually fulfilling and fun. It may not seem very touristic, but it would take your visit to Rome to another level.
The concert would have been enough with just the knowledgeable tour of the church. Add beautiful baroque music to that and I was in heaven.
We felt almost transported back in time. An experience not to be missed.
Shouldn't be missed by anyone who likes music, especially early music!.
What a great way to have an experience in a Baroque Palazzo.
It was a unique experience! Interesting and moving.
We were charmed by the genuine enthusiasm of the performers and recommend to other Travellers
We warmly recommend anybody, visiting Rom, who loves painting art as well as music to participate to this sound and vision tour.
beautiful church, and music!
Great venue - beautiful singing - they really gave it all they had. Highly recommended. Great start to any evening in Rome.
Well worth the investment of time and money.
A definite highlight of our trip
