  • The Fountain is located in a small square behind Notre Dame Cathedral. Beautiful. The Work of the architect Alphonse Vighur. Another wonderful work of the master "Fountain of Kyvier" can be seen in Paris, strolling at the Botanical garden at the corner of the streets (Linney Street and Kyvier Street).

  • In the 4th arrondissement, strolling through the square Jean XXIII located behind the bedside of Notre-Dame Cathedral, you will discover this fountain of neo-Gothic style entitled "Fountain of the Virgin". Created in 1845 by the French architect Alphonse vigorous, born in Germany and died in 1854, she sits on a lawn floor lined with plantations. This supervisor also realized the Cuvier fountain of the 5th arrondissement. From a height of about ten meters, the fountain of the Virgin has a triangular shape. At each of its angles is the statue of an Archangel at the foot of which the water flows into a six-sided basin. At its top is sheltered a Madonna and child, work of the Parisian sculptor Louis Parfait Merlieux, who died in his hometown in 1855. He also made the sculptures of the two fountains of the place de la Concorde: fountain of the seas and rivers. You can come by Metro, line 4, station "Saint Michel-Notre Dame", RER B and C same station.
