Photographer's Note

The Fontana del Pantheon, surmounted by an Egyptian obelisk is situated in the Piazza della Rotonda, just in front of the Pantheon. The fountain was constructed under Pope Gregory XIII in 1575, and the obelisk was added to it in 1711 under Pope Clement XI (as you can see from the inscription at the base of the obelisk).
Although not as famous as Fontana di Trevi, the Fontana del Pantheon as well as the fountains in Piazza Navona are among the beautiful treasures of the city. At the time they were built they served as a source for potable water for all romans, nowadays they stand as a meeting point for lovers all across the world.
