Piazza of Knights of Malta

#9 of 62 places to visit in Rome
Piazza of Knights of Malta on the Aventine Hill is located a little farther from the Church of Santi Alessio and Bonifacio.

Here are the doors of the Priory of the Knights of Malta, leading into the main villa - the residence of this ancient Catholic monastic association. Near the door is always crowded with tourists - through the keyhole at them you can see the impressive panorama of three countries - Italy, Vatican and the Order of Malta.

There are also obelisks with mysterious signs, which tries to solve more than one generation of historians.
