See the Fountain of Joy in Siena Feb 04, 2017
he Fonte Gaia is many things. A remarkable piece of art, a refreshing fountain,a landing spot for assorted birds, and definitely a popular place for tourists to take a few pictures.

Work on the first fountainl was begun around 1334. It took about eight years of construction before the first water reached the PIazza del Campo. The Fonte Gaia itself was built some 70 years later and served as the end point for an elaborate system of aqueducts that not only fed the fountains but also provided water to the nearby fields, it was considered a marvelous achievement for the time. The fountains have had at least two major rebuilds over the years. Most of the original marble panels and sculptures from the earlier versions of the fountain are today found in Siena museums.

The best time to observe and take a few photos of the fountain is early in the morning. At that time it seems like neither the birds and tourists have not began their daily journey to the Campo.
