Lungotevere in Sassia with the Ospedale di Santo Spirito in Sassia

Lungotevere in Sassia is the stretch of Lungotevere that links Piazza della Rovere to Via San Pio X in Rome (Italy), in the Rione Borgo.[1]

The Lungotevere takes its name from the Schola Saxonum, a numerous Saxon community that settled in the Leonine City at King Ine's suite; it has been established as per deliberation of the city council dated 20 July 1887.[2]

Along the Lungotevere rises the monumental complex of the Ospedale di Santo Spirito in Sassia, an ancient hospital along with its church, next to a modern medical centre.
