Nymphaeum of the Rain

Nymphaeum of the Rain

The "Nymphaeum of the Rain" or, as it is also called "Farnese Nymphaeum", is a kind of monument to the nymphs and especially those of springs that the Romans used to build. Amazingly, the original paintings are preserved[a] under the film of salt covering the walls!
