    Monumental fountain in Carrara marble in the pyramid structure depicting Orion, founder of the city of Messina, and under the big twelve-sided tub with four statues of the rivers Nile, Tiber, Ebro, Camaro. It was built to celebrate the creation of the first city aqueduct.

    Is found in piazza Duomo, next to the Bell Tower and the Cathedral in the central area of the city. Built in 1547, is the work of a disciple of Michelangelo, Montorsoli. In the bath there are 4 statues representing the rivers Tiber, Nile, Ebro and Camaro that powered the fountain

  • A pretty fountain in a nice square close to the church with the interesting bell tower. Worth stopping by if you are in Messina. Plenty of shade to take a rest in. There are hustlers selling hats etc around, but they don't seem to bother you too much once you've told them no
  • Best place to start your visit in Piazza del Duome - most immpresive place to be part of the Bell Tower spectacle at 12.oo o clock every day. Do not miss it!
  • Piazza Duomo in messina is the most and try to be there at 12:00 to enjoy the historic animated and sounded patterns
  • Beautiful. Be there at 12 in afternoon for surprises. ☺️👍
  • Beautiful fountain on an amazing square!
