NOTES: The church, also known as Santa Maria in Schola Graeca, was built in the 6th century and incorporates two earlier structures, the Templum Herculis Pompeiani in the Forum Boarium and the Imperial Roman Statio Annonae. The church underwent substantial restoration in 1118-1124 during which time the seven-storey campanile was added. The Fountain of the Tritons (Fontana dei Tritoni) is 1715 by Carlo Francesco Bizzaccheri. It was also named Fountain of Clement XI after Pope Clement XI (1649-1721) who ordered one to be built in his memory.
