The Monti quarter is densely populated by an astounding number of churches. The Church of San Domenico and Sisto is part of a convent also hosting a Catholic University. The Church of Santa Caterina is between the Monti and the Quirinale hills. The Church adjoins the Torre Spaccata, the extant lower part of a medieval tower, from which rival family clans used to watch and possibly slain opponents.
