If you want to know the history of the city of l’Aquila, here is the best place to start, to “enter the city”. You should also save time to visit the History Museum that is right there.

This fountain is one of many mystics of L'Aquila! Up until now nobody knows from where comes the water!!! And it never stops running! Seeing this amazing fountain will make you curious to learn and understand the history of this absolutely amazing city!!!

Really impressive, it reminds of the ancient city power and beauty. A bit outside the city center but to be seen.
