Although the fountain is interesting, I would not rate it highly. The square is beautiful, but as of now the fountain is shrouded and under repair. Check before you undertake a visit with high hopes.

Sure it would have been just stunning had we been able to see it. These things do happen as nothing lasts for ever.

What more do you expect? But for being a fountain it's beautiful! Well, not while under construction, but I saw it a few years back not under construction and it was lovely.
