    Description:

    In 1855 Haussmann completed an enormous new boulevard, originally called boulevard de Sébastopol-rive-gauche, now called Boulevard Saint-Michel, which opened up the small place Pont-Saint-Michel into a much larger space. Davioud was charged with the new facades and fountain of the square. The prefect authorities asked to build a fountain to hide the end wall of the building at the corner of boulevard Saint-Michel and Saint-André des Arts.

    Description:

    The square is a tiny park adjoining Notre Dame de Paris on the east side named after Pope John XXIII. The central sculpture within the neo-Gothic spire is the Virgin and Child, sculpted by Merlieux. The lower part of the fountain shows three archangels defeating the allegorical figure of heresy. The fountain is known as the Archbishop’s Fountain as the area, since the 17th century, had been the site of the Archbishop’s Palace and garden.

    Description:

    The Musée du Vieux Toulouse owns a plaster model made by Falguière. The final fountain was completed by Laporte (Falguière’s student). There are changes in the design from the model to the executed fountain, but the iconography remains the same. The personification of the Garonne River spreads its arms between the rocks of the Pyrenees where it originates. The Ariege, below, discharges its water through an urn, symbolizing the function of a tributary of the Garonne. The fountain was origi…

    Description:

    Old well heads (fountains with lion head spouts) clustered together with a basin and covered with a cupola. This has survived WWI, but the modern superstructure is now lighter, open ironwork, with a domed top, resembling the earlier structure. It is located in a pedestrian plaza (Place Gaspard de Coligny).
