The stairs pour into a large square centered by the boat's roundabout, also called the old boat's roundabout, symbolizing the ancient sinking of Rome when the Tiber flooded and swept away the boat here. A wide staircase linking Spain's roundabout to the Trinitade Monte square, a meeting place for tourists and locals who come to this famous staircase. On the south side of the roundabout is the statue of King David and the prophet Moses, and to the southeast of the Spanish Steps we find the Trevi Fountain filled with statues, also known as the Fountain of Fortune, or the Fountain of Wishes, in which the tourist or visitor throws a coin and wishes a wish, in faith or hope to achieve it. Hundreds of pedestrians pass through the Spanish Steps every day, and some take a relaxing walk. Others are tourists, students or loved ones sitting there to spend some enjoyable time, surrounded by hotels, restaurants and buildings.
