  Not the Griffon Fountain but another fountain
by amsterdam_vallon

In oder to supply the GRIFFON FOUNTAIN with water, the city requested and obtained the surplus water intended for the Castle. The construction of the fountain was ended in 1664. During their visit in 1688, Charles-Paris d'Orl?ans and his brother had wine flow instead of water during public festivities. This fountain was once in the middle of crossroads.

The fountain was under serious restoration in June 2004.
