One of the most grandiose fountains in Spoleto could possibly be that of the large fountain in Piazza del Mercato, located in the historical centre of Spoleto. The current fountain was built in 1746-1748, designed by a Roman architect, it replaced the original fountain which was built in the facade of the old Romanesque church San Donato.

The fountain has an unusual mixture of decorations, in the centre there is a clock, above that there are the coat of arms of the Barberini family, the family of Pope Urban VIII, water trickles out of a central dish and to the side there are two masks where water flows out of their mouths into a large trough at the bottom. To the side of the clock there are windows with shutters, the fountain has to be seen to be believed.
