  • unusual in that it is not as often happens in the middle of a pizza, but at an angle, to separate the Cathedral Square from the area of the fish market. must be very attractive in summer, when the river water springing from the fountain refreshes the surroundings.

  • The locals call their fountain: Compact and silky, flowing water appears to create a sheet; is an external manifestation of an underground river the Amenano, basement following one of several eruptions of Etna. Visit and the view of some parts of the restaurant Hostel which houses some caves and passages very suggestive.

  • This is a pleasant and beautiful place precisely because it directly is not on the Piazza, but something in the corner.

  • Lovely fountain.
  • A very pretty sight!
  • Symbol of the city of Catania and the old town. Known as "the water or linzolu" pours out its water on an underground river. It is also the entrance to the fish market. Absolutely recommended a picture for tourists who want to take away a memory in Catania.

  • This fountain, called by Locals "the water or linzolu" feeding and pours its waters into the river Amenano, underground river whose course has been modified the course countless times by various lava flows. The river comes out in some parts of the city and its current course is not fully understood.

  • Very nice fountain, although nineteenth-century invoice perfectly recreates a certain Renaissance. Nice waterfall effect of the water falling into the river Amenano in one of the few points where citizens are still visible. Surrounding area should however be taken with more care to be able to enjoy better.
