Designed by Bramante in 1502 for the courtyard of San Pietro in Montorio, a church on a hillside above Rome.
‘Harmonious’ is the adjective always used to describe this diminutive temple, which is considered to be one of the most perfect realisations of Renaissance ideals.
It might be noted that the structure has no real purpose beyond aesthetic delight.
It is open to the public, but the best angle for a photo is from the street, looking through the entry gate.
Symmetry is imperative.
