This oval shaped piazza was my favourite square in Rome. It takes its shape from being on the site of an ancient Roman stadium. The square is visibly beautiful, the main style of architecture is Baroque.

The square is dominated on one side by the church Sant' Agnese in Agone. In the centre is the Fontana dei Quattro Fiumi. The four rivers are represented by four giants & in the centre an obelisk. There are fountains at either end of the square also. As the square is a magnet for tourists it is surrounded by shops & cafes.
