Fama Fountain

The Fama fountain in action. The Fama fountain is located on the upper left side in front of the palace. The main feature is a massive pyramid of rocks forming a base for an allegorically winged Fama astride a horse celebrating victory over Envy, Falsehood and Hatred. There are also 6 rock clusters with spouting water jets and the fountain basin is skirted by lead statutes of mythological figures.
