This concrete sculpture looks for all the world like a baroque fountain, but was put up in 1907 in the centre of the square with all the banks.

Walk to it across the bridge that connects Syracuse proper to the Old Town on the promontory and come to this fountain. The carvings and statues in this fountain rival Trevi and I took so many pictures which I need to cull. How will I...More

It is a nice fountain that reminded me of others I’ve seen, such as, those in Rome’s Naviona Plaza. It's worth a short stop to take a couple photos.

This is located in a large square and the day we visited there were several "buskers" playing guitar, or playing accordion and trumpet etc. to entertain passersby.

We walked passed the fountain during the day followed by an evening stroll a day later. Worth seeing both aspects. Great area to people watch and enjoy the ambience

Too bad this otherwise nice piazza is filled with parked cars and traffic, but I suppose they have to be somewhere.

Visiting the fountain during daylight hours it would probably be described as average, However, when illuminated at night it becomes quite delightful. Watch out for the many newly wed couples having photo-shoots in the evening when it provides a romantic backdroop.

Lovely busy congested area. Enjoy the diesel fumes with your espresso. Caught the hop on bus was an escape!
