The first Borghese Pope, Paul V, bought this splendid Renaissance palace shortly after it was built for a fellow Cardinal in 1605. The palace is known as cembalo, for its curious shape resembles the harpsichord.
It was here that Paul’s nephew, Cardinal Scipio Borghese, founded his famous art collection now transferred to the Villa Borghese. Although the palace is not open to the public, the courtyard with its double loggias and hidden garden is worth more than a passing glance. The legendary Pauline Bonaparte, Napoleon’s sister, who married Prince Camillo Borghese and enlivened early 19th-century Rome with her amorous exploits, lived here.
