The Trajan fountain is situated along the right side of Curetes street and was dedicated to the Emperor Trojan. Although the original nymphean (not actually a fountain), was much taller and a smaller version has been rebuilt. This is also why some of the ornamental...More

Make sure you notice all the details in the carvings. I can not even imagine the talent it took to create this structure. Beautiful.
