Frascati. St Roch square fountain

The fountain in St Roch square - Piazza San Rocco is the oldest public water show in Frascati and was built in 1480 by Cardinal d'Estouteville.

It was the arrival point of the aqueduct brought to the city from the territory of Grottaferrata. The fountain has an octagonal plan with an elegant spur stone basin from which the water gushes.

The plaque placed on one side recalls its construction.
