  • This is a small fountain is a little park in Trastevere. It was not working when we visited, and the area was pretty littered. A more interesting one is Fontana dell'Acqua Paola, which is about 300 me...  more »
  • Found this fountain while wandering around Trastevere. It's cute, but there are so many more beautiful fountains in Rome. Good to see if you happen upon it, but I wouldn't seek it out  more »
  • The western edge of Luciano Manor Street, which runs east to west in the heart of Trastevere, has just bumped into the foothills of the Janeny Koro, which is a small square, In the square, the fountain of Prizionne is like a water field with a water in the center of the building, like a splendid palace gate, with the back of the Jannie Koro Hill. The splendid figure seems to come from the place where it was originally. The villa and the garden seem to have been in a vast place south from the Termini station and the five hundred people square, and it seems to be a fountain which had been placed in the garden that the person in power named Mont Tart had lived. It is a fountain that people in power like.

  • A very pretty little fountain near the bottom of the hill in Trastevere. Fountains like this can be found all over Rome. I think they are charming.
  • Nice fountain with benches. The quiet neighborhood makes it a great place to sit and take a break.
  • Like every corner of Rome, it gives a lot

  • The "Fountain of the Prison" is from Quinta to the road via Luciano Manara, in fact you can already admire it hundreds of meters away, is located in via Goffredo Mameli at the intersection with the aforementioned street. It is designed by Domenico Fontana (towards the end of the SIXTEENTH century), commissioned by Pope Sixtus V, to embellish a villa present at Esquilino. At the end of the NINETEENTH century the work of arranging the area, determined the demolition of the villa, then after various vicissitudes, the fountain was disassembled and placed where it is now (in the 20s of the twentieth century), although all the pieces are not original, but Reconstructions. The name prison is supposed to derive from a marble poem that represented a prisoner. Therefore, in its present aspect, the fountain is quite simple, with a large niche, placed in the center, whose sides are two pilasters, at the base of which there are as many fountains, in which, the water overflowing flows on a large basin of Harvest on the ground. As additional ornament there are two lateral volutes. In the central large niche there is a head of a lion from which comes out the water that spills over a basin (of rocky form) from which it then flows into the Great Basin. The pilasters support a large curvilinear pediment, adorned with floral festoons, and at the top there are two large vases at the sides and a Acefala statue at the top.
