Statua del Babuino

The ancient statue of the Babuino (Baboon), one of the talking statues of Rome, situated beside the Chiesa di S. Atanasio dei Greci, in via del Babuino, between Piazza di Spagna and Piazza del Popolo. The statue is an ancient depiction of a reclining Silenus: a character in Roman mythology, half man, half goat. Since 1581 it's used as decoration for public fountain. It's far from our Hotel Montecarlo Roma approx 35-40 minutes walking
