Palazzo & Galleria Doria Pamphilj
In the 16th century palace of the Doria family (Palazzo Doria Pamphilj) is the Galleria Doria Pamphilj, a museum with mainly paintings from the private collection of this family. The paintings hang in ten beautiful spaces such as the throne room and ballroom. Partly because the palace has not yet been discovered by mass tourism, this is a wonderful place to visit in Rome.
Originally the palace was built for the Pamphilj family (Pope Innocent X belonged to this family), but after the family had no heir in the 18th century, Pope Clement XII decided to give all the property to the Doria family. Several generations of this family were huge art lovers, so this palace is full of paintings from bottom to top. The collection includes masterpieces by Titian, Raphael, Caravaggio, Correggio and Vélazquez.
It is also possible to visit Princess Doria's private apartments in combination with the entrance ticket to the gallery. The Doria Pamphilj Palace has been home to princes and princesses since the seventeenth century, when Camillo Pamphilj wanted to expand the residence with beautiful rooms. Other apartments in the building are still occupied by the descendants of the Doria Pamphilj family. You can also visit the chapel of this noble palace.
