  • At the end of the 1700s it is the most beautiful of the many fountains you see walking through villa Borghese. In the middle of a large quadrivium, a rather scenic location, it strikes you for its peculiarity consisting of the emergence from the water of the four horses with the final part of the body tail of fish that support a double chalice from which a gush gushes. Other paws spill out between the front paws. Particularly striking are the reflections of the trees and the color of the water depending on the state of the sky.

  • The intersection of Cavalli Marini and Pupazzi Street in the Borghese Park is a circular square, a fountain in the middle of the square. A large basin was supported in four hippocampus as the name of the fountain, and the one that the shape of the mushroom was in the center of the water board was piled two stages, water erupted from the top place, and water had flowed down to the bottom down. Some of the fountains in the park were water-withered, but the fountains in the hippocampus were often water.

  • Nice park for rest just aside of overcrowded atractions
  • Had the best day out at this specific fountain. A must see.
  • Nice fountain in a good area of Rome's nicest gardens. It'd have been nice if the was more seating to admire it on but even standing nearby you could appreciate it nicely enough.
  • For such a beautiful park the fountain is remarkably unremarkable. The sea-horse sculpture upholding the fountain bowl is playful but seems slightly underdone compared to extraordinary public art works elsewhere in the city. Still it's a pleasant enough feature to stumble across while wandering enjoyably.
  • A lesser known beautiful fountain in Rome. Go early morning or late afternoon to see it in all it's glory.
