    Getting there was a business, but it's worth it. I'm a little isolated and the city is still largely inaccessible

  • This is one of the main historical attractions in L'Aquila. It is definitely worth a look, though its distance from downtown makes it a little difficult to reach on foot unless you're starting from the train station. We were advised against drinking the water.
  • Very nice, although not much to see around it. Some info there would be nice.
  • In the if the fountain is wonderful, once rebuilt the whole area will become a citizen of rare beauty

  • Beautiful, there is no other definition. Become one of the landmarks of the capital of Abruzzo is truly unique. Drive along the entire perimeter to fill your eyes with the sight of her 99 mascheroni and then stand in the middle of the square to appreciate and enjoy the collection. The fontana delle 99 cannelle is situated in one of the oldest parts of the historic center of L'Aquila, The Rivera, near the river Aterno. Tradition has it that the masks represent the gentlemen of ninety-nine castles that gave rise to the town in 1200.

  • Old source where a time you drink animals and washed clothes. Beautiful masks from which the water flows. Close to the train station and the Center. Beautiful and in a beautiful old quarter
