The Lion Fountain (Maltese: Il-funtana tal-iljun), also known as the Vilhena Fountain, is a Baroque fountain located in St Anne Square in Floriana, Malta. It was installed in 1728 by Grand Master António Manoel de Vilhena, and it was relocated a few metres from its original location in the 1950s.
The Lion Fountain was built in 1728 by Grand Master António Manoel de Vilhena, according to a commemorative inscription on the fountain itself. It was installed shortly after Vilhena had declared Floriana a suburb of Valletta. It was supplied by water from the Wignacourt Aqueduct, and for many years it was the only source of water for the area's inhabitants.
