City of Fountains

One thing I love about Geneva are the many fountains - you can find them in all "quartiers" and on many small and big squares. Often the water can be drunken without worries. Each fountain has a sign: "Eau potable" means that you can drink from this fountain.
Around Easter I took some pictures of Geneva fountains:
One fountain I'm particularly fond of is the fountain on Place du Bourg-de-Four (last pic above)
I also took pictures of the one on Place Molard, certainly from Jet d'Eau, the one in front of Temple Fusterie and Place Molard .Place Chevelu (where Starbucks Quai des Bergues is located), certainly from Jet d'Eau (order of their appearance above).
I think the fountains are a great picture of fresh water that is in the city ... where you can wash your hands or those of your children, where you can drink and refresh yourself or just soak in the beauty of flowers, water and stone art.
