A must if you’re in rome

The Piazza Navona is one of the most famous squares in Rome. It's located east of the river not far from the Vatican. This is where the Stadium of Domitian was located in ancient times and if you view the area from above, you can still imagine the circular form of the arena. The square itself is like a work of art, not only because of the sculptures and fountains but also due to the surrounding buildings. The ruins of the ancient arena are nearby and you can get a good idea of what the zone was like a thousand years ago.

Bernini's Fontana dei Quattro Fiumi is located at the center of the square along with the obelisk. The fountain represents the four great rivers of the world: the Rio de la Plata (the Americas), the Danube (Europe), the Nile (Africa), and the Ganges (Asia). It's one of the busiest squares in the city and is usually crowded with locals as well as street artists who come during spring and summer afternoons to paint and entertain the crowds of tourists. The Church of Sant'Agnese in Agone is another major landmark in the square. A popular Christmas market is held during the holiday season, but there is also a street market on weekends.

The area surrounding the square seems pretty exclusive judging by the spectacular homes and not-so-affordable cafes and restaurants in the area. That being said, having lunch on a terrace is a true pleasure, especially when the weather is nice. After lunch, have a stroll and see if you can figure out which fountain represents which river. It's during those moments that you realize how truly majestic this city is.

A theatre of stone

A Roman friend of mine who acts as a sort of personal tour guide when I'm in Rome says that the Piazza Navona is a theatre of stone. Me? I just love it, especially the ornate and gorgeous buildings that surround it. The most striking part, though, is definitely the Fontana dei Quattro Fiumi built by Gian Lorenzo Bernini in 1651. These four giant fountains symbolize the greatest known rivers at the time. The Nile has a mask because, at the time, its source was still unknown. At the time it was built, many locals took this veiled figure as a symbol of contempt for the Church of Sant'Agnese in Agone designed by Borromini, a rival of Bernini. Figures representing Rio de la Plata, the Ganges, and the Danube also appear. The name is derived from agone ("competition") in honor of the mock naval battles held in the square until the mid 19th century.

Walk among roman art and history

This square was defined as such in the late fifteenth century, when the market moved here from the Capitol. The Piazza Navona is of the Roman Baroque era and the papacy of Innocent X. In the square you'll see the Church of St. Agnes in Agona (Sant'Agnese in Agone) of Francesco Borromini. Front, and in the center of the square is one of Gian Lorenzo's fountains - Bernini's Fountain of the Four Rivers (Fontana dei Quattro Fiumi) from 1651. Bernini and Borromini did not get along, so one of the men in the Bernini fountain covering its face in front of the church by Borromini. The Piazza Navona is home to 2 other fountains by Giacomo della Porta: the Fountain of Neptune (1574) and the Fontana del Moro (1576). It is a rather touristy area, surrounded by cafes and bars and in the square's centre there are plenty of painters showing their works. You get plenty of walking here. It is a harmony between art, history and everyday life of todays Romans, as beautiful by day as by night.

Fountains, churches and animation

A must visit in Rome, and the fate of the main places are within walking distance affordable. Here was the Stadium of Domitian, first century, will see its shape, with capacity for 30,000 spectators and say you can still see some remains of the old structure north of the square, I would not have discovered yet. The square is home to three sources, the Fountain of the Four Rivers (Fontana dei Four Rivers) by Bernini 1651 is the central and most significant, representing the four major rivers of the then known world. In the center is a large obelisk located 16 meters high that belonged to the Circus of Maxentius and was found on the Appian Way. The market is held in this square, was transferred in 1869 to Campo de Fiori, one of my favorite places in Rome and not far from this square. It has hosted theatrical performances and even horse racing, very curious is that until the mid-nineteenth century, every summer closed drains the three sources until the middle of the square was flooded to become "The Lake of the Plaza Navona ". The set is completed by the Church of Saint Agnes in Agone, the Palazzo Pamphili, current Brazilian Embassy, ​​and Our Lady of the Sacred Heart. Do not fail to take a chocolate tartufo at Tre Fontane ice cream or take a look at the toy Il Sogno. View stalls, painters, or the evening in the square is a pleasure.

Fuentes, iglesias y animación

Imprescindible visita en Roma, además con la suerte de que los principales rincones están a una distancia asequible para ir caminando.
Aquí estaba el Stadium de Domiciano, del siglo I, vereis su forma, con capacidad para 30.000 espectadores y dicen que aún pueden verse algunos restos de la antigua estructura al norte de la plaza, yo no los he descubierto todavía.

La plaza alberga tres fuentes, la Fuente de los Cuatro Ríos (Fontana dei Quattro Fiumi) de 1651 de Bernini es la central y más significativa, representa los cuatro grandes ríos del mundo conocidos por entonces.
En el centro está situado un gran obelisco de 16 metros de altura que perteneció al Circo de Majencio y que fue encontrado en la Vía Apia.

El mercado que se celebraba en esta plaza, fue trasladado en 1869 a Campo de Fiori, otro de mis lugares preferidos en Roma y no distante de esta plaza.

Ha albergado representaciones teatrales y hasta carreras de caballos, muy curioso es que hasta mediados del siglo XIX, cada verano se cerraban los desagües de las tres fuentes hasta que la parte central de la plaza se inundaba para convertirse en "El Lago de la Plaza Navona".

El conjunto lo completa la iglesia de Sant'Agnese in Agone, el Palazzo Pamphili, actual Embajada de Brasil, y Nostra Signora del Sacro Cuore.

No dejeis de tomar un tartufo de chocolate en la heladería Tre Fontane o de echar un vistazo a la juguetería Il Sogno.
Ver los puestos ambulantes, a los pintores, o el anochecer en la plaza es un auténtico placer.

Pride of the roman baroque

The old "Stadium of Diocletian" has maintained its elliptical shape, with different "equipment" and "jobs" over the centuries. Today it is known as "Piazza Navona"! Emerging from a small alley, it is our view an incredible vision and unexpected. A very huge rectangular extension at the same time collecting and bounded around its perimeter by historic houses and places of worship. At its core, the heart of this extraordinary place, we find two fountains on either side of the extreme, the Moro and that of Neptune, the Church of Our Lady of the Sacred Heart, the Church of St. Agnes in Agony, the Fountain of the Four Rivers , and several prestigious buildings (Braschi, Lancellotti, Tuccimei, etc..).

Orgoglio del barocco romano

L'antico "Stadio di Diocleziano" ha mantenuto la sua forma ellittica, con diversi "allestimenti" ed "impieghi" nel corso dei secoli.
Oggi è conosciuto come "Piazza Navona"!!!
Sbucando da un piccolo vicolo, appare alla nostra vista una visione incredibile ed inaspettata. Una enorme estensione molto rettangolare, nello stesso tempo raccolta e delimitata in tutto il suo perimetro da palazzi d'epoca e luoghi di culto.
Al suo interno, nel cuore di questa straordinaria piazza, troviamo due fontane ai due lati estremi, quella del Moro e quella di Nettuno; la Chiesa di Nostra Signora del Sacro Cuore, la Chiesa di Sant'Agnese in Agone; la Fontana dei Quattro Fiumi; e diversi palazzi prestigiosi (Braschi, Lancellotti, Tuccimei, etc.).

Art in the square

In Piazza Navona you can take a great cappuccino at one of the cafes around the square while listening to good music or watching a puppet made by street artists. The street artists present their art in the square, where many tourists and locals spend photographing and just taking a break to watch the presentations, entirely free (but contributions are always welcome). We watched a presentation by a group of four musicians playing songs from the classic Italian popular songs. They used instruments like the guitar, cello, saxophone and accordion (or accordion), had many people around and the music was very good. We also saw a piece of puppetry. A man wearing black gloves with dolls attached to them was the interpretation to the music which he put to play. The movements were very real and very funny performance. The Piazza Navona, besides being very beautiful to admire, also offers the experience of outdoor entertainment, is a good place to take a break between touring Rome.

Arte na praça

Na Piazza Navona você pode tomar um ótimo cappuccino em um dos cafés ao redor da praça enquanto escuta uma boa música ou assiste a um teatro de bonecos feitos por artistas de rua.

Os artistas de rua apresentam sua arte na praça, onde muitos turistas e moradores passam fotografando e acabam fazendo uma pausa para assistir as apresentações, inteiramente gratuitas (mas contribuições são sempre bem vindas).

Nós assistimos a uma apresentação de um grupo de quatro músicos que tocavam desde músicas clássicas italianas a músicas populares. Eles utilizavam como instrumentos um violão, violoncelo, saxofone e acordeão (ou sanfona), tinham muitas pessoas ao redor e a música era muito boa.

Assistimos também uma parte do teatro de bonecos. Um senhor usava luvas pretas com os bonecos presos a elas fazia a interpretação conforme a música que ele colocava para tocar. Os movimentos eram muito reais e a performance muito engraçada.

A Piazza Navona, além de ser muito bonita para se admirar, também oferece essa experiência de entretenimento ao ar livre, é um bom lugar para fazer uma pausa entre os passeios por Roma.

Largest square in rome, and probably ...

Largest square in Rome, and probably the best known, "Piazza Navona" is located in the heart of historic Rome, a few steps from the Pantheon. Dating back to antiquity, its renovation was ordered in 1650 by Pope Innocent X (hence the presence of the papal coat of arms on the Fountain of the Four Rivers). This huge square is divided into three fountains: Fountain of the Moor, the Neptune Fountain and the most famous of all, the Fountain of the Four Rivers, showing the four most representative of the time rivers: the Danube, the Nile, the Rio de la Plata and the Ganges. This lively square, always full of life, with as many tourists as Romans, is a place of passage obliged to contemplate both the fountain and the place for a coffee or ice cream (gelato) to one of the many terraces, or try the specialty of the glacier "Tre Scalini", the Tartufo, an Italian chocolate ice cream with cherry heart surrounded by black piece of chocolate and whipped cream.

Plus grande place de Rome, et sans doute la plus connue, la "Piazza Navona" est situé en plein cœur du quartier historique de Rome, à deux pas du panthéon. Datant de l'antiquité, sa rénovation a été ordonnée en 1650 par le pape Innocent X (d'où la présence des armoiries papales sur le fontaine des Quatres Fleuves). Cette place immense s'articule autour de trois fontaines : La fontaine du More, la fontaine de Neptune et la plus connue de toutes, la fontaine des Quatre Fleuves, représentant les quatre fleuves les plus représentatifs de l'époque, à savoir le Danube, le Nil, le Rio de la Plata et le Gange.

Cette place très animée, toujours pleine de vie, avec autant de touristes que de Romains, est un lieu de passage obligée, tant pour contempler la fontaine et la place que pour prendre un café ou une glace (gelati) à l'une des nombreuses terrasses, ou tenter la spécialité du glacier "Tre Scalini", le Tartufo, une glace italienne au chocolat avec de la cerise au cœur et entourée de morceau de chocolat noir et de chantilly.

Beginning of evening piazza navona

It was not on my road book originally planned for my stay in Rome, and is wandering through the cobbled streets of the Eternal City, I came across this beautiful square streets! . I discovered this place in the early evening, while many tourists flocked to the restaurants on the square, I could enjoy this moment to admire the various street artists present that night (dancers break dance painters bombing). Both say that the atmosphere in this place is matched the architecture of the surrounding buildings. . In summary, it is always good to turn away from its originally planned route.

Début de soirée à piazza navona

Elle ne figurait pas sur mon carnet de route initialement prévu pour mon séjour à Rome, et c'est en déambulant dans les rues pavées de la ville éternelle que je suis tombé sur cette magnifique place !
.
J'ai découvert cette place en début de soirée, alors que nombreux touristes se ruaient vers les restaurants de la place, j'ai pu profiter pleinement de cet instant pour admirer les différents artistes de rue présents ce soir là (des danseurs de break dance aux peintres à la bombe). Autant vous dire que l'atmosphère qui règne sur cette place, n'a d'égal que l'architecture des bâtiments l'entourant.
.
En résumé, il est toujours bon de se détourner de son trajet initialement prévu.
