History and description
The Palazzo del Drago gets its name from the Del Drago family. The Del Drago‘s were originally from Viterbo. They had their Rome residence built on top of a number of houses they had bought in 1557.
The old San Salvatore de Inversis Church was incorporated in the building and in the 16th century restored by Mario del Drago.
Although the family kept ownership of the palace until the middle of the 20th century, they themselves had moved to another building on the corner of the Via delle Quattro Fontane. This building used to belong to Maria Cristina, wife of the Spanish King Ferdinand VII.
The ground floor of the Palazzo del Drago is nowadays used as shop space.
