Scalinata di Trinit dei Monti are a set of steps in Rome, climbing a steep slope between the Piazza di Spagna at the base and Piazza Trinit dei Monti, dominated by the Trinit dei Monti church at the top.

The monumental stairway of 135 steps (the slightly elevated drainage system is often mistaken for the first step) was built with French diplomat ノtienne Gueffier痴 bequeathed funds of 20,000 scudi, in 17231725[citation needed], linking the Bourbon Spanish Embassy, and the Trinit dei Monti church that was under the patronage of the Bourbon kings of France, both located above to the Holy See in Palazzo Monaldeschi located below. The stairway was designed by architects Francesco de Sanctis and Alessandro Specchi.
