A Journey, Across the Centuries
Staying in a luxurious apartment that holds the secrets of Rome’s history, admiring the view from a balcony overlooking Piazza Navona, wandering through the heart of the Eternal City – all of this from a privileged vantage point. The Holy Deer City Lodge can be the beating heart at the center of a journey that knows no boundaries and that, with passion and daring, spans the centuries. Like true love.
On the splendid Piazza Navona, you can see a small balcony on the façade of the Church of Sant’Agnese in Agone. Behind that window, far from the hustle and bustle of the square, lived Pope Innocent X, protected but almost kidnapped by his beloved sister-in-law, Olimpia Pamphili, a woman of exceptional strength and power in 17th-century Rome.
Those very rooms, expertly restored and brought back to life, are now the Holy Deer City Lodge: 350 square meters of 17th-century style and art, where wonder knows no bounds. The essence of the Baroque resides within these walls.
SANT'AGNESE IN AGONE AND PIAZZA NAVONA
Rome is an immense stage, where architecture takes center stage in an endless spectacle. Piazza Navona is one of these stages; on the cobblestones that define its stadium-like shape, you will find the most magnificent expressions of Baroque sculpture and architecture: Bernini’s Fountain of the Four Rivers, the Fountain of the Moor, the Fountain of Neptune, and the Obelisk. This scenography is completed by the towers of the Church of Sant’Agnese in Agone, which, along with the concave façade that enhances the dome of the Baroque building, are evidence of Francesco Borromini’s presence at the court of Pope Innocent X.
