Fonte do Ribeirao, Sao Luis

(3/5 based on 170+ 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.

  • The source of the River is a beautiful monument and a very interesting story, in the visits on the weekends best go with large group or accompanied by a guide, since, as the Mall is closed the place has less security.

  • Nice location, newly restored, a source of pure water in which you can see fish, suggest that people outside to visit with residents of the city or large group of people.

  • 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!
