The square is also known as the Parco del Ninfeo.
Via di San Pancrazio leads to a wide area known as Largo Giugno 1849. The Aurelia Antica begins here. There is an entranceway next to an old Baroque villa, which takes you to the Doria Pamphilj Villa. The Baroque villa faces onto the road and is shaped and styled like a vascello (sea vessel), a fact that does not go easily unnoticed. However, the villa's importance owes more to its role in history than its architectural design. The villa was actually the last stronghold of the Roman Republic that only fell after valiant defence. You can still see the signs of the battle in the building's ruins, and also in the Doria Pamphilj Villa nearby, where you can see some of the monuments built to celebrate this historic event).
