La Fontana di Ponte Sisto. Two dragons carved in the base of the columns spurt water into the basin, as do two lion-heads. The fountain was moved in 1898 when the bed of the Tiber was widened. The Borghese coat of arms dominates everything.

Marforio. Pope Sixtus V Peretti had the statue moved to the Piazza di San Marco (Rome) in 1588, and then up to the Piazza del Campidoglio in 1592, where it decorates a fountain designed by Giacomo della Porta on a wall of the Basilica di Santa Maria in Ara Coeli, facing the Palazzo dei Conservatori. In 1645, the building of the Palazzo Nuovo enclosed the fountain into a courtyard.

La Fontana dei Quattro Fiumi. Collectively, the river gods represent the four major rivers of the four continents through which papal authority had spread: the Nile representing Africa, the Danube representing Europe, the Ganges representing Asia, and the Plata representing the Americas. Here, the Danube, representing Europe, closest to the Papal Coat of Arms, closest to Rome.
