Via Monserrato

The street's name derives from the 16th century church Chiesa della Madonna di Montserrat (from famous Spanish sanctuary) which was located here. Before it was named Via di Corte Savella because of the presence of a tribunal and jails managed by the baron Savella family. But in the very beginning it bore the name of via Arenula e Regula or Recta, a generic name that had been given to some other Roman streets.

Via Monserrato lays between via dei Banchi Vecchi and Piazza Farnese. The street was composed of churches, noble palaces, houses of merchants and etc. In one of the Renaissance constructions (#117), for a certain period of time, was located a public house, which was restored before 1870 and its owner was very much criticized because of the modern aspect of the building given by restoration works; the owner responded on it with the inscription on the architrave: "Trahit sua quemque voluptas" or "I do what I want to do". The area is rich in restaurants, bars, wine bars, banks and markets.
