Built in the early 1600, the fountain was originally located on the other side of the tiber during widening of the banks it was removed stored and later erected in its current location within Piazza Trilussa. worth a visit during a walk of the area.

Fontana del Ponte Sisto is a 17th century creation. In fact it was constructed in order to provide an adequate water supply to the Vatican Gardens! Of course others benefited as well. Worth a look.

Trastevere
Trastevere ("beyond the Tiber") is like a faded
