Galleria Borghese

The gallery, adjacent to the villa that dominates the Pincian Hill, built for Pope Paul V in the early 17th century, is considered the most important museum in the world for its collection of artworks by Bernini and Caravaggio, including the former’s Apollo and Daphne, the latter’s Young Sick Bacchus and The Deposition by Raphael. Interestingly, Bernini’s sculptures were created specifically to be housed here.
