Crammed into a corner of the square
Feb. 2020
You'll have to look around for it. Overwhelmed by local buildings. It is dominated by the more obvious Elephant fountain and the Duomo.

Walking in the wonderful "Piazza Duomo", in the Catania downtown, you could appreciate the Amenano Fountain, from this point you could reach rapidly the "Pescaria ".

Tucked away in a corner of Piazza del Duomo
Oct. 2019
This is a very nice and large fountain with plenty of water running through it. It is tucked away in a corner between two buildings but you shouldn’t miss it if you walk round the piazza. It is a good place to catch some shade and look back across the Piazza.

White marble fountain
Sep. 2019 • Solo
Shade and a beautiful white marble fountain . Because of the sun I had to seek refuge and the thoughts of a cool mountain stream were in my thoughts . Actually I hear that it once was water from a underground spring and it supplied the whole area .

Small but important fountain
Aug. 2019
Fontana dell' Amenano is a lovely white marble fountain at the corner of Plaza Duomo. In the past, the water of this fountain was supplied from an underground water used for cleaning up the Fish Market nearby. Currently, the place is becoming one of the landmark in town.

A semi-hide fountain in Catania
May 2019 • Couples
The fountain is at the corner of the main square, over a little channel or creek. Behind that you will find the fish market.

It’s a fountain - what else can you say
Apr. 2019 • Couples
Located in the main square near the cathedral - worth a look if you are there. Nice but smelt a bit fishy.
