On entering the Old Town through the Pile Gate one of the first things you'll come upon is the 'big' Onophrian Fountain. A sixteen sided fountain built in the fifteenth century and which was a water supply for the city supplied via an aqueduct system from the nearby area of Sumet. It was designed by a number of people but accredited to only one, Onofrio Giordana della Cava, hence the name. It is a wonderful fountain with the water still good to drink to this present day. It is also a great meeting place in a town which can get extremely busy at times. A wonderful way to start your exploration of the Old Town if you enter from the western gate. I call it the 'big' fountain as there is a smaller fountain which is located closer to the central market area and this is called the 'little' Onophrian fountain.
