Renaissance fountain
Oct 2020 • Friends
Also in Ancona you can rediscover the Italian Renaissance, this is a beautiful fountain with 13 spouts and 13 masks is a beautiful example of Renaissance art, between the piazza del plebiscito and this air Ancona presents itself to tourists at its best showing the beauty of the lounges Renaissance of Italian historical centers centri. Definitely a nice area to visit, perhaps taking advantage of a beautiful day and eating or having a coffee in some outdoor restaurant

Right in the centre of town and very attractive. Obviously a key meeting place and we enjoyed sitting at a nearby bard and watching the activity around this fountain.
Interesting history n ell located in what is now a pedestrianised shopping zone.

Eye-catching fountain!

As we walked in the mall before a stormy downpour we noticed this amazing fountain on the side. We took our picture from the same position as this one. Worth looking up at the elegant buildings in the mall.

Historic fountain that sometimes still works
Sep 2018 • Friends
The fountain we see today was built in the XVI century, but there has been a fountain in this spot since ancient Greek times.
The fountain has 13 masks of Satyrs and Fauns and it is still in use (though water was turned off when we visited) and according to Ancona's traditions if you wish to come back to the city you must drink from it.

This is an unusual sight, lovely cast faces of mythical creatures as spouts for the water. Really different from other fountains

It was nice to see the old fountain is still running. Nice entrance to the old town. Looks cool at night.

Right in the middle of town. Only takes a few minutes to snap a few photos. Surprisingly no one was here.
