Fountain of Leda, Paris

Fountain of Leda, Paris

Have you walked past the Medici Fountain and passed this right by? This fountain is actually attached to the back of the Medici Fountain. Sculpted between 1806-1809, it originally stood at the corner of rue Vaugirard and rue du Regard. It was moved in 1856 to it’s present “hidden” location in Jardin du Luxembourg.
