Doria Pamphilj Palace – San Martino al Cimino (VT)


The building of Doria Pamphili Palace, on the ancient abodes of the Abbey, is due to Olimpia Maidalchini Pamphilj who, around the middle of the 17th century, entrusted the architect Marcantonio De Rossi with the radical transformation of the urban fabric of San Martino al Cimino.
The city center was structured with houses lying to each other and deployed as a function of Abbey and Palace, originally used by monks as a hospital and transformed – on this occasion – into a sumptuous mansion by using materials from the other palace Family, the one of Piazza Navona in Rome.
The Doria Pamphilj Palace is composed of a medieval place underneath the road plan, as known as “Cantinone” (the ancient Hospitale of the abbey), a raised ground floor (with the large Aldobrandini Hall), a mezzanine and a piano nobile (with the splendid Olimpia Hall and the other rooms embellished with wooden ceilings and decorated friezes).

From the top floor, you can enjoy a spectacular view: from the large windows the sight ranges from the terraced roof to the Viterbo plain delimitated by sea.
