  • This fountain was created in 1733. Located near the centre of Pompidou on St. Maarten Street. I was not impressed... besides, it didn't work

  • In the 4th arrondissement, at the intersection of Rue Saint-Martin and the alley of Venice, you will discover one of the oldest fountains in Paris. The "Maubuée fountain" was created in the 14th century and appears in the writings in 1392. Its name would mean "bad laundry" because of the poor quality of its water at the time. As for the current fountain, it was created in 1733 by the architect Jean Beausire and his son. Because it was on the site of the Centre Georges Pompidou, it was moved to its current location in 1937. It's not working. It is inscribed in the historical monuments in 1926. You can come by Metro, line 11, station "Rambuteau".

  • A Curious 18TH-century fountain that doesn't work today. It Is more a testimony than something to admire, the most interesting its historical value and as it is right in front of the entrance of the Centre Pompidou is easy to get to see it.
