The Gabriele, or Cariopele, is one of Palermo’s rivers. Portrayed as a mature man in the Piazza Pretoria fountain, its source, on the slopes of Mount Caputo, consists of four streams running close together: Gabriel, Nixio, Campofranco and Cuba. The waters of the Gabriele fed the Zisa, the Cuba and reached as far as Castello a Mare, before flowing into the sea.
