St. Peters Square ( Piazza San Pietro), Vatican City: 73 reviews and 182 photos
Two beautiful Vatican fountains were erected on the northern and southern sections of St. Peters Square in the heart of the Vatican City. Both of them are approximately eight meters high. The south fountain was designed by Carlo Maderno in the year 1613 whereas the north fountain was the work of Gian Lorenzo Bernini who added the fountain to the square in the year 1675. The Egyptian obelisk is located between the two fountains roughly in the center of the square. Both these fountains provide excellent background for beautiful souvenir snapshots and are very popular with local and foreign tourists! They are also favourite meeting places for the locals. Don't miss the fountains when you visit St. Peters Basilica.
