Fonte do Ribeirao, Sao Luis

(3.1/5 based on 160+ reviews on the web)
Diminutive but vividly colored and charmingly decorated, Fonte do Ribeirao has a quaint and unusual - yet picturesque - appearance. One of the most popular and historic sites in the region, the fountain was constructed in 1796 by Antonio de Noronha, a former governor of Maranhao. According to local legend, the source of the fountain is in fact the head of an unseen, underground serpent.

  • This is located right in the heart of downtown San Luis, this was well used by ancestors, and still has underground paths that leads to other historic sites.

  • Very bacana.....se not mistaken hides also the underground galleries that link all the churches of the historic centre. Very interesting and worth knowing.

  • If you are around, it's worth stopping by for a quick photo, but it's not the kind of landmarks that compensates for locomotion. Place needs to be better care and that passage could be used connecting to the city centre is not open or is not an essential tourist spot.

  • Mau preservado
  • Muito bonita , eu lembro que eu já bebi muita água pura e natural dessa fonte ! Boas lembranças muito bom rrevêr minha querida São Luís , bom demais ! Também acho muito, mal preservado !
  • O evento de burger e beer artesanais foi fantástico!
  • O lugar onde fica não é legal e chegando lá a fonte nem é tudo que se vê nas fotos.
  • Lugar abandonado pela administração do prefeito Holanda. Não votem nele!
