Acquarium

The “Acquarium” was part of the east wing of the The Waters of Health complex and it is still linked to the main building by curved porticoes. Its main attraction was the Hall of the Five Waters.

It hasn't changed much and it would be such a beautiful place with those frescoes...

A beautifully designed building almost waiting expectantly to be treasured and made grand again! Love those fresco features!

Great comparison of what the building looked like 104 years ago. Can see some changes and some deterioration, but it is still a lovely building.

Acquarium, a clever word but hard to spell.
