This is an unusual sight, lovely cast faces of mythical creatures as spouts for the water. Really different from other fountains

It was nice to see the old fountain is still running. Nice entrance to the old town. Looks cool at night.

This fountain is quite unique and interesting. If you are in a hurry you could easily walk past it. It all works. In the centre so easy to locate.

Nothing better then eating an ice cream while sitting on the ledge of the 13 cannelle and looking at the people passing by.

This location was discovered by my boyfriend in a tourist guide and it had a nice story so we decided to see it. It is a fountain with a different design, a historical spot, where many coins gather every year. I think that it could...More
