The origins of the Botanical Garden of Rome can be traced back to the papacy of Nicolò III (1277-1280) with the establishment of a pomerium or verziere, founder of the long series of Vatican gardens within which the Botanical Garden developed. In 1660 Pope Alexander VII arranged for the University to have its own Botanical Garden, free from the Vatican and the seat was established in an area behind the Pauline Fountain on the Janiculum. .
