Best hours for searching : the morning, before 10 am

La fontaine mur, conçue par Gabriel Davioud et inaugurée en 1860, est une sorte d'arc de triomphe ou est représenté l'archange Saint-Michel terrassant le diable, entouré de chimères (dragons ailés).
Elle a un petit air italien avec  les couleurs multiples de ses matériaux :bronze, marbre rouge du Languedoc, marbre vert, pierre bleue des Soignies et calcaire jaune.
C'est aussi un point de rencontre très fréquenté des parisiens et par les visiteurs du quartier latin, et c'est donc au milieu de cette foule que vous devrez discrètement chercher la cache… La cotation de terrain tient compte de cette difficulté. Évitez en particulier les vendredi et samedi soir, le meilleur moment, c'est le matin.
Mais sinon, heureusement, vous ressemblerez à tous les touristes, et personne ne fera trop attention à vous :-)

English The wall fountain designed by Gabriel Davioud and inaugurated in 1860, is a kind of triumphal arch where is represented the Archangel Michael slaying the devil, surrounded by chimeras (winged dragons).
It has a small italian air with the multiple colors of the materials: bronze, red marble from the Languedoc, green marble, blue stone of Soignies and yellow limestone.
It is also a meeting point popular and crowded by the parisians and the visitors of the latin quarter, and it will be inside this crowd that you will search the cache discreetly …The terrain cotation takes this into account.
Avoid wednesday and saterday evening, best hours are early in the morning. but fortunately, you'll look like any tourist, and no one will pay attention to you :-
