In the 16th century, there was just a stone fountain at this site, and it looked nothing like what you see today. Poor function led to the fountain's reconstruction in the 19th century. It resulted in a beautiful hexagonal monument, with a 17th century column rising from its centre. The column was built in commemoration of the plague victims of the late 17th century. The sculptures at its base represent the town's protectors and saints associated with fighting the plague. On top of the column is a statue of the Virgin Mary. Take a picture, and continue your tour of the historic centre.
