Fontaine Wallace Murale Reviews
We once stayed in a hotel very near here and often return to this charming neighborhood. This fountain on the wall always grabs our attention. It is lovely and once served an important purpose. more »

These late 19th century cast-iron drinking water points were financed by Richard Wallace, collector, Member of the British Parliament, and created by the sculptor Charles-Auguste Lebourg. At the last census, 120 Wallace fountains were counted in the capital... large and small models, with balusters... which makes an average of six per rounding. The particularity of this one, is that it is wall-mounted and this is the only remaining copy in Paris. This work was created in 1872 by the sculptor and the Foundry d'art du Val D'osne in Haute Marne. It works and has benefited from a restoration of 2015. You can come by Metro, line 7, station "place Monge" or lines 7, 10, station "Jussieu".
