    "A Beautiful Fountain To See....must see to appreciate!!"
    My husband & I were on vacation to Sorrento and took a day trip by ferry boat to Positano & Amalfi. We have been here before by private driver but to see these mountains from the water just takes your breath away! We strolled into this piazza and sat down beside the Fontana at Porto Salvo da Germanino and enjoyed a delicious gelato. The Fontana is a sight to behold with water poring out of the breasts. Must see to appreciate!

    A symbol of Amalfi’s glorious maritime past
    Located at the bustling Piazza Duomo in the town centre, the historic St Andrew's Fountain was built in 1760, featuring a blend of Byzantine and Arab architectural styles and is dedicated to none other than St Andrew, the patron saint of Amalfi. His statue stood prominently at the centre of this fountain surrounded by nymphs and cherubs, with refreshing spring water spouting out from the most unusual places. To the casual tourists, this fountain may be a convenient source of water to quench their thirst, but to the locals, it symbolizes the historical and cultural heritage of Amalfi's glorious maritime past.

This is an interesting fountain. Best of all, it is conveniently located in the piazza in front of the duomo and unlike the duomo, you don't need to climb any steps at all to see it.

Probably the second most photographed attraction on Piazza Duomo. Lots of people fill their water bottles here.

The fountain was built in 1760 and is one of the symbols of the city. In the center is a statue of St. Andrew, the patron saint of the city. Pretty nice building.

The sculpture/fountain sits in the Piazza dell Duomo and depicts St Andrew but water pouring from his breast!!!! Locals and tourists alike drink and fill their water bottles here probably thinking it brings good luck but probably only a refreshing way to hydrate!!
The fountain is nothing special when compared to the likes of Trevi or others!

The fountain is conveniently located right in front of il Duomo di Sant'Andrea. It's free to access, although the piazza was quite busy as it's surrounded by shops, cafes, and restaurants.

Right in the middle of town and in front of the city main church it is almost impossible to miss. I saw some people filling up water bottles with the water from the fountain. I am not sure how secure the water is to drink.

Since there isn't much to do here other than enjoy the views, this is considered an attraction. In Rome it would not merit a mention.
