Piazza Navona in Rome

The construction on the Piazza began in the 15th century in the northern Campus Martius on the spot where once stood the stadium Domitianus or Circus Agonalis (competition arena). It features important creations like the Church of Sant' Agnese, the Fountain of the Moor and the Fountain of the four Rivers (Danube, Ganges, Nile, La Plata) of Gian Lorenzo Bernini with the obelisk of Domitian.
