In This place on Sunday a good antiques fair is happening that I really enjoyed.

The water flows from the pond on this disc. It is called the fountain of Jussieu and also "the mouth of truth", originally from ancient Rome... Created in 1994, it is the work of the Parisian sculptor guy Lartigue, known for his sculptures-fountains and water modelings. Nothing really extraordinary. You can also come by bus, line 67, stop "Jussieu", right in front.
Go there really early. Best to be there when it opens so you won't have to wait 30 min or more just to take a picture with the Bocca. À popular photo pose is to stick your hand into its holes. Legends say liars will loose their hand by doing so.
We went right after it opened at 9 a.m. Our kids LOVED IT! Definitely worth our 5 minutes in line for some hilarious family pictures and something fun to talk about.
