Santiponce Itálica


An immense legacy waiting to be discovered

Nuestra Señora de la Estrella Fountain and Washhouses


The fountain is located on the northeast edge of the town, on the former road to the Venta El Alto. A signpost set up by the Town Council indicates that the fountain was built in 1928. The spring feeding the fountain also supplies the town. A well-preserved washhouse, now in disuse, stands behind it.

The fountain consists of a large, slightly rectangular basin with three spouts, where the women gathered to talk, and a trough. 

About 25 metres away is the washhouse with 16 granite basins where people used to wash standing up.
