This fountain was built around the 12th century.

It was to supply water to the fishing neighborhood of Alfama.

The fountain previously had six spouts in the form of animal heads, each intended for a different social groups.

The fountain has deteriorated due to the 1755 earthquake and only has three spouts left.

It no longer operates as a fountain.

Unfortutaly this old fountain needs to be sign posted to make it clear what a mainstate it was in Lisbon in times gone by. However it has been left to become delapidafed and I wouldn’t have given it a second look if our tour guide hadn’t told us about it!

Despite some of the past reviews we still chose to stay here. It’s an elegant mini Palace, only six rooms. Staff in particular Xavier and Ricardo went above and beyond to make our experience special. Very clean.
Great location, in the heart of Alfama with Fado all around. Bathroom was large and modern. We stayed in top floor, room Paula. Very spacious, full kitchen and living room. Very quiet, highly recommend it. The only problem is lack of elevator with guests with mobility issues.

Not to sure what to think of this. I guess the reference is to the facade of what once used to be a palace. The palace looks a bit run down. From street level a lot of red or purple blooms are visible growing from bushes or small trees on the roof of the palace. Some of the branches are hanging over the roof line. It one time there may have been a working fountain here. The house right behind this palace is pretty ornate and interesting.
