Fontaine Saint Jean

La Fontaine Saint Jean ©
The fountain was built from plans by the Lyon-based architect René Dardel, who wanted to reproduce certain details of a well that Philibert de l'Orme had built at 37 rue St Jean. It is Renaissance-style and shows a small ancient temple.
Ce temple abrite une sculpture de St Jean-Baptiste baptisant le Christ, réalisée par Jean-Marie Bonnassieux. A l'origine, la fontaine se composait d'un simple bassin octogonal avec colonne centrale d'où l'eau jaillissait.
