Description

San Pietro in Montorio is a church in Rome, which includes in its courtyard the Tempietto, a small commemorative martyrium (tomb) built by Donato Bramante. The Church of San Pietro in Montorio was built on the site of an earlier 9th-century church dedicated to Saint Peter on Rome’s Janiculum hill. It serves as a shrine, marking the supposed site of St. Peter’s crucifixion. In the 15th century, the ruins were given to the Amadist friars, a reform branch of the Franciscans, founded by the Blessed Amadeus of Portugal, who served as confessor to Pope Sixtus IV from 1472. Commissioned by Ferdinand and Isabella of Spain. It is a titular church, whose current title holder, since 1 March 2008, is Cardinal James Francis Stafford.
