Fountain up the near the bus terminal enroute to the allied invasion museum
Very impressive but needing some work
Worth taking a look at - try and ignore the tramps sleeping in the small garden around it mind

Nice fountain but is desperate for some restoration
Oct 2019
This is a short walk from the central train station but it seems to be a forgotten fountain and landmark which requires restoration. It needs a good clean up as well the surrounding area being cleared of rubbish and overgrown trees. This seems to be typical of many of the cities out lying structures that all require some maintenance and care. It is a shame as this could be such a great feature.

I was so excited from the distance and then I got closer . I hope that very soon that the city takes it upon themselves to restore this in all its glory . I would love to see it with water running .

Great Statue - Needs Renovation
Sep 2019
You'll see this quite often if you are travelling around Catania by bus or car or taxi. It is the centre of an island between the two sides of a main road. Lovely statue as you look at it closely - a masterpiece in its day.
But it is so badly in need to some renovation; at least clean it !!

A masterpiece with poor maintenance
May 2019 • Friends
We had the chance to see this beautiful fountain every day on our way to the train station, since it's located right outside of Stazione Centrale Catania. It's heartbreaking how poorly it's maintained. There is was some trash around it as well.

The statue is next to the train station of Catania, one of the remarkable attractions of city. Upon learning about the story, i was more amazed. I wish I had the chance to see it at night as well. Worth to see the attraction.

This is a very attractive statue near the station. It looks better at night when all lit up. Very busy road to cross when seeing the statue.

Powerful statue, especially if you know the mythology around it
Oct 2018 • Couples
Traffic in the immediate area is very busy and chaotic, so this statue is best seen while on a city tour bus.

Lifts an otherwise ordinary part of town.
Aug 2018 • Couples
A very dramatic sculpture and fountain that is in the more ordinary part of town by the station. Not sure if rape and abduction would be considered a suitable subject in this #metoo era!
