DUKES FOUNTAIN

Via Fontane del Duca
Description
Built in 1292, it's below the Dukes Palace. A stairway leads to it. It is opposite an open space, on a stone wall, under a segmental arch. Water springs from eight animal shaped mouths, and it's conveyed from two springs nearby by means of a still existing water main. Four mouths represent a mastiff's head, the other ones either a lioness or another feline
How to get there
Easily accessible, located in the village lower part, free parking nearby and in a small square opposite. Not accessible to the disabled, since twelve stairs lead to it.
