The defined detail and beauty of this fountain could leave you gazing for hours. Ceramic Artist and master craftsman Jacopo della Quercia designs this perfect fountain that was replaced using the same design in 1859 in Carrara Marble. A true beauty!

Gorgeous little fountain located in Piazza del Campo right in front of the famous tower of Siena. A great location to take lots of pictures of the piazza and the surroundings.
