Overview

Piazzale dei Cavalli Marini lies about half way down the Viale dei Cavalli Marini near the lovely Piazza Siena in Villa Borghese. The name comes from the enormous circular fountain that almost fills the square and includes four huge marine horses mostly immersed in a large tank at ground level (i.e. dug out of the ground). The four support another, smaller horse. The fountain was created at the end of the 18th Century by Unterberger.
