The Medici Fountain, built in 1630, is one of the most beautiful monumental fountains in all of Paris. It is located in the shade of trees and almost hidden on a side of the Luxembourg gardens. Restored in the 18th and 19th centuries, it was also moved stone by stone in 1860. A simple and romantic place around which it is pleasant to stroll, relax, read, or just dream. The central niche represents Acis and Galatea lying under a rock on top of which Polyphemus is preparing to launch a stone to kill the rival.
