Although approacihing Piazza del Duomo included some old and not pretty neighborhood, this fountain and the cathedral justified all the efforts. Excellent spot on the square and exellent for taking pictures.

On your way from the main Piazza Duomo to the fish market you cannot miss this fountain. Not very big in size, but perfect in every detail, the most interesting for me was that water is pouring down in a stream flowing beneath.

simpaticna fountain, but far from the others that are much better here in Sicily. It's kind of hidden in the corner of piazza duomo. It's always crowded for painting around it.

The river runs under the city that services this fountain that is on the corner of cathedral and fish market. It looks great lit up at night.
