Piazza Navona - Rome


The Piazza Navona is a superb square which was once occupied by a stadium built by Domitian in the 1st century BC Much later it was paved over and lined with Baroque palaces and churches. Of particular note is the Palazzo Pamphili, built in the 17th century by Rainaldi and Borromini, the rival of Bernini and now home to the Brazilian Embassy and the Baroque Church of Sant'Agnese in Agone, also dating from the 17th century. Three fountains occupy the centre of the square: the Fountain of the Four Rivers by Bernini, depicting the Nile, Ganges, Danube and Rio de la Plata, the Fontana del Moro by Giacomo della Porta and Bernini and the Fontana di Nettuno dating from the 19th century.
