  • In the middle of the piazza del campo, facing the Palazzo Pubblico, well decorated, even drinking water you can take from a source attached, beautiful architecture

  • Beautiful fountain that can be seen, let's say it's the little bonus by going to see the piazza del campo. Nothing transcendent yet.

  • When the source was opened, in 1346, was greeted with joy by the people who, living in a city with no river, were afflicted by the problem of lack of water. Sienese marble statues built were damaged by time and replaced by the 19th-century sculptor Sarrocchi. Inside of the Hospital of St Mary of the staircase you can see the original statues and the work done by the 19th-century sculptor to reproduce the original sculptures.

  • Nothing much here for me. The place was clean. The square on the whole was an amazing view
  • Looks good. Worth seeing the original versions that were removed and are now stored in the ex hospital building.
  • Beautiful fountain. Excellent attraction for the tourists.
  • Nice fountain but nothing like the fountains in Rome for example
  • This fountain just doesn't fit in it's surroundings. Even without taking this into account, it looks like a cheep replica of poorly designed fountain.
