Piazza Mattei is a hidden jewel of Rome's centre. It takes the name from the patrician Mattei family, whose palace is adjacent to the Costaguti palace, despite the latter was built before the Mattei's. Also the Costaguti palace has a square dedicated to it, on the side, however the main entrance since a few centuries is situated in Piazza Mattei.

The Fontana delle Tartarughe (Turtle Fountain) and the Palazzo Costaguti behind it.
The Turtles' Dream apartment is the highest one in the palace, with open shutters. From it you enjoy great views.

The square is famous for the "Fontana delle Tartarughe" (Turtle Fountain), built by Taddeo Landini between 1581-1588. The fountain is considered one of Rome's finest, and it is world-acclaimed: four replicas were built in the USA alone.
In the fountain, four bronze ephebes or adolescents hold with one hand a circular basin, and with the other they help a turtle to climb the basin. They ride 4 bronze dolphins, placed in 4 conch shells of amazing marble. Water spouts from the circular basins and from 4 putti in the shells and in the quadrangular final basin. Originally the ephebes held 4 other dolphins (in addition to the 3 on which they are standing), which were replaced in a renovation occurred in 1658 with 4 turtles.

The Turtles' Dream apartment windows take up the entire high floor of the Costaguti Palace, seen from the Turtle fountain. The apartment is so desirable that it seems as if the turtles dream to reach it.

The facade of the Costaguti Palace is stately and very refined.
