This fountain was built back in the 1200's and has all the astrological signs around it and they are beautifully carved. It is surrounded by a wrought fence most likely to preserve its beauty.

Perugia is a beautiful old town, and the fountain is in the major square of Perugia. Built many centuries ago, and the design of the various sculptures around the outside of the fountain are fascinating. Great photo ops!

This fountain is in the major square of Perugia so it is hard to miss. It provides a good photo opportunity as the shot can be taken from many vantage points.

It's a really impressive piece of historic masonry. But I can't give it 5/5 because in the end it is just a fountain - albeit a good one.

First thing to do in Perugia: head straight for this monument. Beautiful sculptures all around the fountain, which I was told represent months, seasons, and more. Remarkable example of 13th century art.

It has a fence around it. Maybe it's pretty but the water flow but the water flow is enough to make you seek out a urologist. COULD MAKE A GROWN MAN CRY.

You walk past this to get to most old town attractions and sometimes forget to stop. Not spectacular but still very interesting and worth a look.
