Navona Square

An unforgettable square with its fountains, churches and street artists.
Among the most famous Roman squares, this baroque gem offers to all art lovers a large number of masterpieces in its perimeter: masters such us Bernini, Borromini, Rinaldi and Pietro da Cortona left them mark with immortal masterpieces such as the Fountain of the Four Rivers, the church of Sant’Agnese in Agone and the frescoes of Palazzo Pamphilj.
Its history dates back to the first century AD, when there was the emperor Domitian, when the homonym stadium was built that hosted the track and field events, some of which memories are guarded in the nearby Via Zanardelli.
Always used as a landing for its picturesque street artists, if you want to bring home your portrait or a characteristic glimpse of the city. During Christmas the square changes in order to offer fine glass decorations, nativity scene papier-mâché characters and all sorts of overly sweets and gift ideas.
