History and description
The “Fountain of the Beautiful Flora” was placed in the Piazza San Nicola in 1886, as an inscription on the base of the statue indicates.
The bottom part of the fountain is characterized by water spout shaped like lion heads.
Although the statue supposedly either represents the mythical goddess Flora or a nymph called Aricia, in reality it was taken from the old cemetery of the city.
