It took me a while to figure out that the Le Quattro Fontane, are four little fountains (very little water flow) attached to sides of the buildings on the four corners of the intersection. Disappointing - not even worth a picture.

In any other city this group of four fountains would be a destination but this charming group is modest compared to monumental Trevi fountain. All the same, I hope to see them again. Work them into your itinerary on a walk from Santa Maria Maggiore...More
