This foundation was in the city center. It was close to everything, including shops, cathederal, and a great place to sit in the sun.

Great fontana, but too close to fish market, smelled a little bit, but interesting and clean. Nice place to take a photo.

Located in one of the corners of the Piazza del Duomo is this small but nice fountain worth a picture and a look at. Afterwards, can walk down behind it and go see the fish market or turn back around and see the rest of the city square!

You'll want to take a photo. It marks the center of town and the center of this square. Not especially striking or remarkable.

Passing this fountain you walk down to the fish market or turn back to the Duomo and the Elephant Monument. An interesting thing about the fountain is the ancient river runs under it

In one of the corners of the Piazza del Duomo, you find this great fountain, which is just spectacular. A selfie or a picture with it is simply a must. Totally free!

It's an attractive a fountain that you'll see in any square in Europe- no more, no less. When taken in with the "elephant" and the Duomo, you can't help but be drawn to it. Great for photo-op.

It’s just a fountain as ornate as thousands of others just like it all over the globe. Absolutely nothing special about it. If you happen to walk past it, fine, but I would NOT make a special trip to go see it unless you are collecting “check marks” on your list of things to do in Catania, as our tour... More

A pretty fountain, of significance because it is one of the few places where the Catania river can be seen at the surface. The rest of the river was rendered underground by various lava eruptions from Etna :) The fountain is found at the corner of the Duomo square, just before the Catania market. A pretty sight :)
