Standing proudly against the magnificent backdrop of the Hotel du Parlement, Fontaine de Tourny is a fine example of Quebecois' love for their city. The fountain was built in the mid-19th Century by French sculptor Mathurin Moreau, and graced the city of Bordeaux until 1960. After numerous years of disuse, the fountain was purchased and brought to Quebec by an eminent city-based businessman as a gift to its people. Named after the street on which it originally stood, the large fountain features majestic sculptural details and an astounding 43 outlets. Come evening, the fountain, illuminated in all its glory, is truly a sight to behold.
