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 font is on the historic site of São Luís do not see water, just shows how were treated water sources in ancient times.

  • Location stinks and full of rubbish both in source as in the streets alongside. Once again I feel I lack enough interest in public administration so that these spaces are best exploited for tourism.

  • The source surprised me, because it has fish in the waters. I didn't expect to find, but very cool. Worth the ticket.

  • 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!
