Fonte do Ribeirao, Sao Luis
(3.1/5 based on 150+ 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.

  • on tour by the Centre of são luis, we observe this beautiful Fountain where formerly served as a water supply for the population.

  • This source but water served to escape for the Portuguese during the French invasion. It is possible to find 3 "Windows" closed by bars that hide underground tunnels that connect the churches of the historic centre. On site there are events of crafts, music and culture. Care must be taken during the night and days little moved. There are times when the source is clean and well cared for and others that is dirty and abandoned.

  • Unfortunately the city doesn't take care of the place, it's dirty and stinky. But the story that there is a of entries from underground corridors of the historic centre is very cool.

  • 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!
