Neighborhood: Centro Storico
Overview

This street was restored by Pope Sixtus IV at the same time that the Sixtus Bridge was rebuilt to create a link between the commercial area of the Ponte, Parione and Regola districts with the Trastevere. Its name was derived from the fact that the street used to be used by comb manufacturers. The local areas also have streets named after the main commercial activities that used to take place in them. The Hospice of the Hundred Priests stands on the street and was built by Domenico Fontana with the purpose of being a charitable institution.
