Piazza Saturno

Originally built in 1342 by the will of the noble family Chiaramonte and one of the first fountains that was realized to distribute drinkable water to the city. The water came from the foot of Mount Erice transferred through a multi arch shaped water duct which no longer remains. In the 18th century a Baroque style statue of Saturn, mythical founder of Trapani, was added to beautify it.
