This fountain was built back in the 1200's and has all the astrological signs around it and they are beautifully carved. It is surrounded by a wrought fence most likely to preserve its beauty.

Perugia is a beautiful old town, and the fountain is in the major square of Perugia. Built many centuries ago, and the design of the various sculptures around the outside of the fountain are fascinating. Great photo ops!

You will see it regardless because it is in the middle of the main Piazza. I mean it's a beautiful Fontana, but surrounded by large historical buildings. Like other reviewers have put, its overshadowed. There is a story behind, and if you take the time,...More

It's a really impressive piece of historic masonry. But I can't give it 5/5 because in the end it is just a fountain - albeit a good one.

First thing to do in Perugia: head straight for this monument. Beautiful sculptures all around the fountain, which I was told represent months, seasons, and more. Remarkable example of 13th century art.

It has a fence around it. Maybe it's pretty but the water flow but the water flow is enough to make you seek out a urologist. COULD MAKE A GROWN MAN CRY.
