Fontaine Saint-Michel is a huge monumental fountain located on a corner, at the end of a series of buildings. In some ways it is reminiscent of the fontana di Trevi in Rome, but not quite to that scale. Fontaine Saint-Michel depicts a number of figures but the central theme is of Saint Michael killing a dragon or the devil. We walked by this fountain several times and each time we had to stop and look at it. It is quite a spectacular monument and is worth visiting.

A huge bronze statue of St Michael battling the devil in form of dragon is really very nice sculpture. 2 dragons on 2 columns serve as fountains. Sit right next to it to be refreshed!

this huge fountain is at one of the entry points into the Latin Quarter. It is in a small plaza that is dwarfed by it. The sculpture is of the Angel Michael in his fight against evil. very busy intersection so it's hard to get a good photo.

Pink marble columns with bronze figurines and dragons, with detailed sculptures within the fountain, it is worth visiting.

Book end style monuments/fountains etc, are quite popular in paris however this one (designed by Gabriel Davioud), would have to be the most spectacular of them all. This monumental fountain, depicts the Angel Michael, (the Patron Saint of Warriors), fighting evil. For the best picies get there early or later, as this is a popular meeting place for tourist groups.
