An immense legacy waiting to be discovered

Fuente del Algarrobo


This fountain is located at Calle de la Fuente, in the old town of Gelves. It is built on a brick retaining wall. It consists of three staggered basins with a marble slap and a pipe protruding from the wall. The water flows through the two basins until it reaches the bottom. The water was diverted to a pool, now covered, that the owners used for recreational and watering purposes. It was said that the water was of high quality and had curative powers. (P.A. Cantero, 1995)
