Fonte das Pedras, Sao Luis
(2.3/5 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.

And on the way my parents always took me to see the fish that were in the Sources of the stones. Very sad to see the place completely abandoned for years. The last time I was there, the gate was open, i.e., it was impossible. For now there's nothing more to be seen because it needs restoration and security.
