Village Fountain

Monção
Description
Next to the Caldas Avenue and to the Municipal Archives as well, we can  find  the  Village Fountain,  an  interesting  manueline style fountain,  dating back to  the XVI  century.

It is located  below the street pavement, and it can be reached through a stairway consisting of three flights of stairs in between the heights.

At the top, you can see   the armillary sphere, the Royal Arms and  the inscription on the frieze, according to which  the fountain was  rebuit  in 1652, under the command of Judge António da Mata Perestrelo.

Previously, this fountain supplied the village with drinkable water, starting from the spring  located  south of the village. This  unique architectural complex deserves a  visit.
