This is a beautiful fountain in the center of Acqui still used by locals. The water is very hot, over 70 degrees Celsius and smells a bit of sulfur. Original and worth a visit.

We passed here on a drizzly damp night but the simple little monument actually felt quite romantic as there was nobody else around and definitely worth seeking out.
