joel.herbez says of the history of this building :

La Fontaine actuelle, de construction récente est l’héritière d’un édifice plus ancien, construit en 1690. Cet édifice reproduisait une fontaine parisienne construite en 1686 pour célébrer les victoires de Louis XIV. Elle était si finement exécutée qu’à sa vue, des voyageurs parisiens de passage notèrent dans leur correspondance « qui a vu la Fontaine de Paris, s’il n’a pas vu celle de Cassis n’a rien vu ». L’expression transformée par Frédéric Mistral au début du XXème siècle demeure et est devenue emblématique du village. Cette fontaine originale fut selon l’histoire locale détruite accidentellement en 1785 par un pécheur Catalan monté à son sommet pour mieux voir les réjouissances de la Saint-Jean.
