You can just pass-by on your way-up to the Basilica or to the Cathedral - interesting water fountain - really feel like putting your feet into it, especially when the weather is hot :)

Very old medieval fountain in a nice and quiet part of Siena with three gothic arches. It was originally much larger than today's version. Here you are able to form an idea how things used to be in the past. There were a drinking tank for men and a sepearate one for animals. The fountain was also used to wash clothes. My daughter (five years old) was especially delighted that there were colorful fish swimming around here.

If you stroll down Fontebranda from Via di Citta you'll come across this interesting medieval fountain in a quiet area. It's reputedly the oldest fountain in Siena and was even mentioned by Dante in the 'Inferno'. Don't be put off by the steep streep down because just across the road from the fountain is a series of escalators that will take you back to the top!

We passed this imposing historic fresh water fountain in Siena.

A massive building with crystal clear water and several fish.

Hard to appreciate that in those early times water could be brought via stone channels, drop into a tank and the public have access. Its size allowed multiple use by people, animals and businesses. Hence the Guild of Woolmakers involvement.

This was located directed behind our hotel and it was so interesting. There were lots of people there when we visited. The children especially enjoyed the fish and feeding them.

You can just imagine women gathering here to wash the household's dirty linens and exchange all that juicy gossip. Beautiful arches, lovely green clear water... and the flash of colour of big carp swimming in the cool depths.

This was a very beautiful site that is not on the typical tourist trail. It's an ancient fountain built in the 1300s. Our guide said that St. Catherine's family lived in the area and were cloth dyers.
