Piazza di San Pietro in Montorio
A church was first constructed here in the 9th century on what was thought during medieval times to have been where Saint Peter was crucified upside down.
Giorgio Vasari's ceiling fresco is in the fourth chapel on the right hand side. Beatrice Cenci is believed to be buried in this chapel or underneath the main altar.
The last chapel on the left is the Baptism of Christ attributed to Daniele da Volterra.
The church is open Monday to Friday from 8:30am until 12 and from 3pm until 4pm. The temple is open around the same time as the church.
