San Carlo ai Catinari

This grand example of a 17th century parish church is dedicated to Saint Charles Borromeo,
once the Apostolic Administrator of the archbishopric of Milan and Cardinal.

It stands between the Campo de'Fiori and Via Arenula, set back a little in Piazza Benedetto
Cairoli - at number 117.

"Catinari" comes from a local trade - as 'basin-makers' once had their workshops nearby!
