The Fontana delle Tartarughe (The Turtle Fountain) is a fountain of the late Italian Renaissance, located in Piazza Mattei, in the Sant'Angelo district of Rome, Italy. It was built between 1580 and 1588 by the architect Giacomo della Porta and the sculptor Taddeo Landini. The bronze turtles around the upper basin, usually attributed either to Gian Lorenzo Bernini or Andrea Sacchi, were added in either 1658 or 1659 when the fountain was restored.

  • One of the lesser fountains, in a quieter corner of Rome. We happened upon it purely by chance. Bernini just had to meddle and embellish the original.  more »
  • This fountain of the sixteenth century, restaured by Bernini, is so lovely, I visit it every time, it's the most charming fountain of this area, with bronze turtles, added probabely by Bernini.  more »
