9 Piazza di Benedetto Alonzo

Fountain of the seven channels

Piazza Alonzo di Benedetto (behind the Amenano fountain). The oldest fountain in Catania. Fountain of the Seven Canals fed by the Amenano river. Today it is inserted in an open arch in the side of the building of the Seminary of the Clerics (which faces the Town Hall) and is located at a lower ground level because it is prior to the earthquake. An inscription gives us the date of construction, namely 1612.

Property bound pursuant to Legislative Decree 42/2004 (DDG n.1486 of 05.06.13).
