Fontaine Saint-michel - Review
As you walk past the Place Saint-Michel, you are bound to come across this beautiful fountain named Fountaine Saint-Michel. This beautiful monumental fountain is located in the 5th arrondissement in Paris. It was constructed during the French Second Empire and was designed by Gabriel Davioud. A close look at the fountain will show that the statue of the fountain depicts the battle between Good and Evil.
The fountain was part of a grand project which involved the reconstruction of Paris.
Today, the fountain has become one of the popular attractions of Paris.

Fontaine Saint-michel, Paris Reviews
I love this fountain! It's an interesting, so easy to just breeze by, so many other "big" Parisian things demanding attention. But take a moment to stop and really check this out. It's a gorgeous statue, the lions are impressive, it's just a nice moment if you can just focus on it (but not so much that you get pick-pocketed).
As fountains go.. this one is pretty much the same as others, spitting water. I suppose a 100 years ago this was very entertaining, now.. it's just another water splurging feature to tick off the box. The area is ok, fairly cheap as Paris goes .. watch out for the pickpockets! Night time brings out the buskers, which are always good value, it also brings out the rats!
The Fontaine is really docaratif and nice but the whole neighborhood is great nice and relatively cheap food is the best place to experience Paris as a student or low budget person
A place to be during the night time. The light come alive along with the market and restaurants. It is a picturesque spot for lovers to hang out. Also, Landmark for the Sandeman walking tour of Paris.
This is a beautiful historical landmark as well as fountain. On weekends and some weeknights street performers can be found here, so bring some Euro coins.
