Public Garden

The Villa Mattei or Villa Celimontana is a villa on the Caelian Hill in Rome, best known for its gardens.

In the gardens were displayed artworks from the Mattei collection. In 1552 Filippo Neri instituted the ceremony of Visiting the Seven Churches and the Mattei family opened their villa's grounds for pilgrims to rest in and provided them with bread, wine,... The gardens were later redefined by Giovanni Fontana and Domenico Fontana, in a scheme including the obelisk.
