  • To admire this beautiful Fountain, you have to go between Châtelet and Les Halles, on Rue Saint-Denis. It was built in the middle of the 16th century, it is of square shape, each side being a kind of arch composed of a large arcade magnified by bas-reliefs depicting mythological scenes and topped with a pediment of classical style, the whole covered with a dome. The flow of water is designed in the form of 4 small waterfalls that spill on a stair game, it is very sober and elegant. The current waterfall, already very old, replaces another originally even older. I often say that the city lacks a fountain, and I would have preferred that one does not replace the other, but adds to the other to have 2 fountains. I keep in mind, however, that Paris was much greener at the time than today, which changes a little. Moreover, the fountain of the Châtelet is relatively close, so I relates my opinion.

  • The fountain of the innocents, which is close to the Forum des Halles, has been displaced by two times, was built in the 16th century. There is an Aure fontazinr of the same name, in the Montmartre district: see the opinion of Gerdom59

  • A must see historical landmark in Paris. It’ amazing when the water running, and amazing the fact how many centuries it survived.
  • Landmark in a lively neighborhood. Good to sit around the sides with a beer on a sunny summer day or with a hot chocolate during wintertime
