The splendid Piazza in Piscinula opens out as you walk along Via della Lungaretta, at Isola Tiberina. Tradition has it that the church in the square, San Benedetto in Piscinula, was founded, at the end of the 5th century, on the site where San Benedetto da Norcia sojourned while studying in Rome. The church is open on Sundays and feast days only, and the most striking element of the building is the 11th-century bell tower: the smallest in Rome, it almost disappears among the roofs of the buildings. The bell, dated 1069, measures just 45 cm in diameter, and is the oldest in the city.
