Piazza Navona, Rome, Italy| Map |
The Fountain of the Four Rivers (Fontana delle Quattro Fiumi), built by Gian Lorenzo Bernini is a magnificent part of the Navona Square (Piazza Navona). Its glistening streams of water offset against sea serpents, strong mer-horses and imposing, masculine figures. The four corners of the fountain represent the Danube, Ganges, Plate and Nile rivers, then known as the four great rivers of the world. The sculpture is surrounded by an oval tub at which visitors can relax and recline while taking in the artwork in the center. The Fountain of the Four Rivers is yet another amazing piece of the Renaissance period.
