This is a place where you can find a lot of interesting thinks. The Italian Consiglio di Stato is the court that judge about admistatives questions and is located in a part of this palace that was the house of Cardinale Spada. A Lot of portrait in the gallery but the best : on Tiziano, some Guido Reni .
The originals marble carvings are incredible, all're made in the I or II century b.c., and some Borromini marble statue are a big expression of art in Rome since 2000 years.
The joke at the end is a perpestive illusion about columns of Borromini and it's incredible and you have to see. The prize to enter in this place is only 5 euros but you can have free during the first Sunday of the month

This palace is now government building and part of it is a gallery with a lot of paintings. The perspective of Borromini is the reason most of the people visit Palazzo Spada.

The art here is salon-like, that is piled on top of the other all the way to the ceiling. There are a few hidden gems but the real draw of this place is Borromini's experiment with forced perspective in the courtyard. This can of course be seen from outside the Palazzo if you don't feel like paying to go in. It's only 2.50 euros with Roma Pass concession.
