The palazzo was commissioned by Pope Urban VIII and designed by Carlo Maderno. In 1629 Bernini took over the construction management.
Today it houses the Galleria Nazionale d’Arte Antica and is one of the most important museums in the city. Among others, works of art by Raphael, Caravaggio, El Greco, Perugino and Tintoretto are exhibited.
