Aqua Traiana

Fontana Paola

The Fontana Paola (Paola fountain), built in the early 17th c on the Janiculum hill along the Via
Garibaldi, owes its name to pope Paul V Borghese to commemorate the new built Acqua Paola, partly on
the substructures of the ancient Aqua Traiana and using the same water sources from the lake
Bracciano. Its local name is Fontanone: huge fountain.
