Named after the Cavalieri di Malta (Knights of Malta), who have their Roman headquarters here, in the Priorato dei Cavalieri di Malta , this ornate cypress-shaded square is famous for its secret view. Look through the keyhole in the Priorato's main door and you’ll see the dome of St Peter’s Basilica perfectly aligned at the end of a hedge-lined avenue.
