On our voyage through Montpellier in the South of France, we have found this absolutely incredible masterpiece in the main square first mentioned in 1755. At the center of the square is a monumental central fountain, covered with centuries of grown moss, named La Fontaine des Trois Graces. It was created by the sculptor Étienne d’ Antoine in 1790. The fountain head has been hand carved in French limestone and playful cherubs are peeking through the thick layers of century old moss. The center pieces is surmounted by the magnificently carved Three Graces.
The sites of these antique sculptured fountains have been gathering places for the inhabitants of the villages and cities, and will always be there to enjoy the Mediterranean lifestyle.
