Turtle Fountain (Fontana delle Tartarughe) Tours

Turtle Fountain (Fontana delle Tartarughe)
Tucked away in a quiet corner of Rome’s Trastevere district, the Turtle Fountain (Fontana delle Tartarughe) is one of many important monuments found in the historic Jewish Ghetto. The collaborative masterpiece of sculptor Taddeo Landini and architect Giacomo della Porta, the fountain was built between 1580 and 1588, and stands at the center of the Piazza Mattei.

A prime example of late Renaissance art, the fountain’s design features a central pedestal depicting four ephebes perched on marble shells, each lifting turtles to the upper water basin. Today, the original bronze turtles that gave the fountain its name have been replaced by replicas thanks to a spate of thieving, while the originals are preserved in the Capitoline Museums. 

Practical Info

The Turtle Fountain is located on Piazza Mattei, in the Trastevere district of Rome.
Address: Piazza Mattei, Roma 00186, Italy
