Santiponce Itálica


An immense legacy waiting to be discovered

Birrete Fountain


This rectangular building has three pipes and a single basin. Located about 1.7 kilometres from the village on the path that bears its name, the building is oriented towards Paradas. A notable feature of this fountain is the network of channels from different periods, equipped with sandboxes, which bring the water to the fountain and to a cistern located on the road to San Antonio. There are an estimated 400 metres of channels. The locals favoured this high-quality water. Water vendors even sold the water at Paradas. The fountain was restored in 2005.
