Time of year
The fountain decorates the beautiful old town square. The design is really interesting, and it contains lions holding the chains with their own mouths.
In 1780 the Mayor of the city Alvise Contarini leave the city and he gave as a gift this beautiful fountain made by marble Zandobbio. Octagonal tub surrounded by several statues , two sphinxes facing Palace Reason and Palace New, then four lions and four snakes.
A fountain holding by lions in the middle of the square of the upper city of Bergamo. Stand there for a bit and got our photos.
Bergamo has much to offer with so many really old things to see. Had a great time but unfortunately it was very hot in July and that steered us to some shaded areas.
This fountain is the center of the core of old Bergamo - The old square. Lovely place that concentrate all the beauty of Old Bergamo
