The historic center, enclosed within the Aurelian walls (on the left of the Tiber) and the gianicolensi walls (on the right of the river), includes 25,000 points of environmental and archaeological interest.
Then there are the squares, unforgettable places in Rome: Campo dei Fiori, with the statue of the heretical philosopher Giordano Bruno in the center; Piazza Navona, where the splendid Bernini Fountain of the Four Rivers is located; Piazza di Spagna dominated by the famous staircase; Piazza del Popolo with its characteristic twin churches; Piazza Venezia with the imposing Vittoriano behind which stands the Campidoglio; the Largo di Torre argentina with the remains of ancient Roman temples; Piazza Trilussa and Piazza Santa Maria in Trastevere, both located in the historic district of Trastevere.
In addition to the historic center of Rome, some religious and public buildings of Papal Rome, extraterritorial properties of the Holy See, are also part of the UNESCO heritage. Among these are some of the most beautiful churches in the capital, considered real artistic masterpieces: Santa Maria Maggiore, San Giovanni in Laterano and San Paolo fuori le Mura. Over the centuries these monuments have exerted considerable influence on the development of architecture and monumental arts in much of the Christian world.
