L'hôtel de la guerre III

Hôtel de la guerre Versailles
In the courtyard of the former war ministry, on both sides of the majestic doorway, there are fountains... This is the one on the right hand side.

Dans la cour de l'hôtel de la guerre, de part et d'autre du majestueux portail, il y a des fontaines. Voici celle du côté droit.

I can see that looking rather spooky in the night!

I understand that the water supply for these fountains has long been a problem.

It appears to be built right into the side of the building. Very nice.

That's a happy looking gargoyle!

I wonder if they had a purpose before or if they're just ornamental.

Interessanter Brunnen, auch wenn etwas beängstigend...

Fountains are always an interesting part of this kind of buildings!

I like gargoyles, ones with fountains are even better, but the best are the ones that divert rain water from the foundations.
