Fonte das Pedras, Sao Luis

(2.4/5 based on 30+ reviews on the web)
Built around 1615 by early Dutch settlers, Fonte das Pedras is one of the oldest structures in this historic city. At least ten such water fountains were built during the colonial times to meet the growing city’s need for fresh drinking water. Today, this fountain is one of only three still in existence. Many residents living in this central part of the city still use the fountain as a reliable supply of clean water. The area around the fountain is a popular meeting point for local families and passing tourists, who drop by this city landmark for a refreshing drink and a convenient photo opportunity.
