The Small Onofrio's Fountain

The Small Onofrio's Fountain

The Small Onorfio’s Fountain is located on the opposite side of the Stradun, inside the walls of the Main Guard building. Its gothic decorations were completed by Italian sculptor Pietro di Martino of Milan. The stone slabs in the middle of the octagonal fountain are decorated with reliefs of naked boys who carry different water-carrying vessels, and a pillar emerges from the spot decorated with a shell that squirts water. The top of the pillar is shaped as a pyramid, decorated with depictions of four dolphins and a flower at the very top.
