Fontaine de la place Jean Cornet

Corner fountain made by sculptor Pasche in 1900 from designs by architect Saint-Ginest. This monumental fountain replaced a fountain created in 1740 and destroyed during the revolution. The inscription engraved under the pediment UTINAM is the motto of Besançon which is found in the form PLÛT A DIEU engraved on other monuments.
