Fontana del Moro

The Fontana del Moro (Moor Fountain) is a fountain located at the southern end of the Piazza Navona, not so far from our Hotel Montecarlo Roma. This fountain was designed in 1575 with the dolphin and four tritons, then, in 1653, the statue of the man was added by Bernini. It represents a Moor, (perhaps originally meant to be Neptune), standing in a conch shell, wrestling with a dolphin, surrounded by four Tritons. It is placed in a basin of rose-colored marble
