What travelers say:

The Triton Fountain is located in Piazza Barberini, and the lights of the surrounding buildings are on at night, which is quite beautiful. This fountain is the work of Bernini, an outstanding Italian sculptor, architect and painter. The Moorish fountain in Piazza Navona and the protagonist of this fountain are Triton, the son of Poseidon. On the Piazza Barberini, he was holding the conch in his hands and drinking happily. Below are four dolphins with open mouths supporting the son of the sea god.

Additional Information

Introduction

The Fountain of Triton and the Fountain of the Bees were both sculpted by the artist Bernini. Bernini had as a patron the Pope Urban VIII, who came from the wealthy Barberini family. The pope commissioned Bernini to build the two fountains in the plaza in front of his family's palace, and provide water to the public from a recently restored aqueduct. The Triton fountain depicts the muscular merman-god emerging from a shell, balanced on four dolphin tails. The nearby Fountain of the Bees (delle Api) is a shell on its side, with three bees balanced on top.
