“For serious art lovers.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 24, 2012

This fountain used to be placed in the front of the Town hall (Magistrat), but they moved it to prevent the damage the weather was causing it. Now it is placed inside the National gallery, and they put a different fountain in front of the Town hall.
The fountain can also be viewed from outside of the National gallery through the glass, but you can also got inside, and see it for free (you pay the fee if you wish to see the other exhibitions).

The fountain was made by an italian sculptor Francesco Robba, who was inspired by Bernini's Fountain of the four rivers in Rome. The fountain is beautiful, and I'm sure it'll be a treat for anyone who is enamoured with sculptures and italian art. But if you're someone with only moderate love for art, you might find yourself a bit underwhelmed, especially if you expect to see something as great as the Bernini's fountain. Robba's fountains is quite a bit smaller.
