Tre Fontane

Corso Vittorio Emanuele II, Tropea, (Vibo Valentia) Tempo di lettura: meno di 1 minuto

In Tropea there are numerous fountains, outside and inside the walls, many of which are still active today. The main source that supplied water to the city was the Saint'Agase source, from which, through large aqueducts, came flows to the fountain located behind the town hall, in ancient Portercole Seat. The type of construction of the Three Fountains deviates from common forms in the area: the decorative use of granite, the tanks to shell and engagement of the three elements in Carrara marble depicting Tritons wrapped vertical axis, they are the result of the expression of local artisans, who have assembled the various elements from different previous compositions.
