The Town Hall, also called Rotovz or Magistrat, is the seat of the Town of Ljubljana. It was built in the late 15th century. The builder was Peter Bezlaj. Its current baroque appearance got in the 18th century.
At the time, builder Gregor Macek, had designed it according to the plans of Carl Martinuzzi. Later, the building was rebuilt several times, most thoroughly in 1963, according to the plans of Svetozar Krizaj. The Town Hall facade reflects Venetian influence. In the lobby are preserved a statue of Hercule from the late 17th century, which once stood on the Hercule well in the middle of Old Square and a late Gothic plaque with the coat of arms, which is the remains of an old building. In the arcades is also the Narcissus well, which is the work of the famous Baroque sculptor Francesco Robba (1698 - 1757), who in 1722 married Theresa, the daughter of the stonemason Luka Misleja. After the death of his father-in-law, Robba took over the workshop of the stonecutter, and with his representative creations - marble altars, furnished the most important churches in Ljubljana. He made Robb's well, the well of three Carniolan rivers, which has been located in the National Gallery in Ljubljana since 2008, before the Magistrate stands the copy. The Narcissus well was transferred from the damaged Bokalce Castle to Town Hall in 1936. The well was created for an intimate aristocratic home, between 1740 and 1950. Robba used a popular antique motif from Ovid's Metamorphoses when making it. Narcissus, who was the son of a nymph and river god, was punished by Aphrodite for falling in love with himself while drinking in a water mirror. Naris weakened from the frowning, and eventually turned into a daffodil flower. Robb's Narcissus is encased in a loose robe, he sits down on a rocky shore and stares at his own image on the water surface. His figure is made of white marble, the tree, rocks and the pool are carved out of reddish marble.
The carefully selected pyramidal fountain composition has a undulating central axis. The axis begins at the top of the tree, in the S line the young man's posture curves and mirrors the water surface. Mastery of Robba - Baroque theater in water and stone.
