You will find the Fontana dell'Immacolatella on the seafront, where Via Nazario Sauro and Via Partenope meet. It was constructed by Michelangelo Naccherino and Pietro Bernini in 1601. The fountain has been constructed from white and gray marble and has a basin with a curvilinear rim decorated with eagles and coats of arms and friezes on the outside. Three arches supported by columns define the structure of the fountain - the central one houses the fountain itself which is in the form of a chalice held up by sea creatures. The enchanting view of the gulf of Naples, dominated by the Vesuvius, with the Lattari Mountains beneath, completes the magnificent panorama around this pretty fountain.
