December 20, 2014: Horses in Rome Advent Calendar
The church of Santa Trinità dei Monte (at the top of the Spanish Steps) has a cloister with some interesting art work. The lunettes depict the life of St. Francis of Paola. Charity was considered his main virtue and this fresco illustrates some of the charitable acts during his life. It was painted by Girolamo Massei in the middle of the 16th-century.
On the opposite side of the cloister are these interesting horses.
