At the crossroads of Rue de Rome, Boulevard Baille and Avenues Jules Cantini and du Prado, you will find Place Castellane. In the center of the square stands a monumental fountain, presented to the city by mason Jules Cantini and given shape by Marseillaise sculptor Allar in 1911. The Rhône, the Mediterranean, the Source and the Torrent are all represented on the pedestal in order to depict the journey of the River Rhône from its source to the Mediterranean. On top of the pedestal is a statue to symbolize Marseille itself.
