Fountain of the Danaïdes

Historic site and monument, Historic patrimony, Fountain, 19th C in Marseille 1er
  • The front chain of the group of Danaïdes is treated in a beautiful Carrara marble: the sculptor borrowed this theme from mythology to exalt the theme of water.

  • Fountain of Art Nouveau style, work of the sculptor Jean Hughes. It was inaugurated in 1907. Reminder of the theme of the myth of the Danaïdes: they are condemned to fill a bottomless barrel for eternity.
