Fontana delle Tartarughe ? Turtle Fountain, Rome: 8 reviews and 12 photos
The delightful Fontana delle Tartarughe (=turtles) was commissioned by the Mattei family to decorate their piazza between 1581 and 1588. The design was by Giacomo della Porta, but the fountain owes much of its grace and charme to the four slender bronze youths each restino one foot on the head of a dolphin, sculpted by Taddeo Landini.
Address: Piazza Mattei
