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.
