“A "chef d'oeuvre" in marble just outside the fish market”
Reviewed 29 May 2014

Like a marble young god watching on the fish market (and the river Amenano flowing under), this statue was waiting for us outside the crowd. Very impressive !

“Lovely fountain just above the Fish Market”
Reviewed 22 April 2014

This is a lovely fountain tucked away in the corner of the Piazza Duomo looking over the Fish Market. The fountain which represents the river Amenano as a young man holding a shell which the water flows from. The water from the fountain flows into a channel which goes under the Piazza.

“Beautiful Fountain”
Reviewed 6 November 2013

Fontana dell'Amenano is in Piazza Duomo with the Fish Market at the rear of it. It is a beautiful sculpture and the rushing water is very refreshing in the heat of Catania.
