  • The fountains of Viterbo is a recurring urban and very important that outline and give uniqueness to the city skyline. Viterbo was previously known as "the city of a hundred fountains" by how many have adorned the beautiful squares, but, unfortunately, the years and neglect have tarnished by their beauty. I would say that the city has done little to enhance them and so it's like if you don't play a very important paper for its revival in the tourism industry. Recommend the visit but you will see only a shadow of their beauty

  • A feature of the town are the fountains, which practically make disappear the squares where they are placed. Many are in need of restoration.

  • As the title of the review, the fountains represent a recurring item (I would say ubiquitous) of the urban layout of the historical centre of Viterbo. Almost certainly not I haven't even seen them all, but I definitely got to appreciate more than a few. In particular come to mind that of Piazza delle Erbe and Piazza della Morte. Decorative sculptural/level for both the figure of the lion (symbol of the capital of Lazio even in heraldry) seems to be fundamental; in the first you can see the imperious statues that seem to dominate the fountain itself, while in the second the water nozzles were created inside the mouth of those animals (see attached photos). Are not monuments or "spectacular", but their spread in the Center says a lot about the close relationship that binds them to the Community (especially when one considers the essential function of water supply that they had in society over the centuries passed). Belle.
