This fountain is located in the southern end of Piazza Navona. Moro means Moor, however the statue could be African also. He is surrounded by four Tritons, who is messenger of the sea in Greek and a son of Poseidon and Amphitrite.

This fountain of Moor is located at the south end of Piazza Navona. This beautiful fountain is commissioned in 1576 by Giacomo della Porta. When you are at Piazza Navona, worth seeing it.

A beautiful fountain (designed by Giacomo della Porta in 1576) that was not actually designed by Bernini (go figure), however he was responsible for redesigning the central figure (moor). We especially like the four tritons.

Fontana del Moro is one of three beautiful fountains in the Piazza Navona, a large and historic public square. It is meant, I think, to represent a Moor, or an African person, and he seems to be wrestling with a dolphin. Around the fountain are...More

This fountain fascinated me because of the tritons. At first I thought they were holding binoculars but water was coming out of them. Then I realized the tritons are blowing the water out. They might be conch shells based on mythology of the tritons. Apparently...More

When one visits the piazza, al fountains need to be seen and appreciated. They are all part of the piazza. I recommend the extra 1 minute walk to see this fountain.

This is an attractive fountain that could be overlooked by people heading straight to see the Fontana dei Quattro Fiumi but it shouldn't be as it is charming in its own right.

Navona / Pantheon / Campo de’ Fiori
With three of Rome’s most beloved piazzas within a
five-minute walk of each other, the
Navona/Pantheon/Campo area may be the prettiest and
most picturesque area of the city. Join the beautiful
throngs hanging out in cafes, boutiques, art
galleries, and wine bars, or peek at a neighbourhood
museum or monument. If you want nonstop movida, the
streets here are busy with chic bicyclists and Vespa
