"Great Place "

A truly stunning piece of work!! So many angles to see it from, could spend hours just sat looking at all the different parts. It really is one of the most wonderful and beautiful pieces of art I've ever seen. It can get busy with lots of selfie takers (like everywhere in Rome), but it's not as busy as other areas, and is a nice area as a whole to chill out a little bit. 100% worth a visit.!!!

Fontana dei Quattro Fiumi

Fontana dei Quattro Fiumi is a fountain in the Piazza Navona in Rome, Italy. It was designed in 1651 by Gian Lorenzo Bernini for Pope Innocent X whose family palace, the Palazzo Pamphili, faced onto the piazza as did the church of Sant'Agnese in Agone of which Innocent was the sponsor.

The base of the fountain is a basin from the centre of which travertine rocks rise to support four river gods and above them, an ancient Egyptian obelisk surmounted with the Pamphili family emblem of a dove with an olive twig. Collectively, they represent four major rivers of the four continents through which papal authority had spread: the Nile representing Africa, the Danube representing Europe, the Ganges representing Asia, and the Río de la Plata representing the Americas.
