This is a historic well that was built by engineer and architect Antonio da Sangallo the Younger between 1527 and 1537. It was during the reign of the Holy Emperor Charles V that the well was constructed as he feared that the water supply might run insufficient in case of a siege. It was completed during the papacy of Pope Paul III.
It is also known as the Fortress Well as it was built near it and then it was named as St. Patrick Well as it was used as a purgatory of St. Patrick. The design is very neat with staircase and holes in it. These are actually large windows in here. Such development is science and architecture so long ago is good to see.
