  • Less grandiose than that in Praça do Giraldo but even this fountain is built in white marble and is a fine example of mannerist architecture in the middle of the 16th century when it was fuelled by the Aqueduto da Água da Prata. Remained unchanged in centuries adorns the square where lies with its square bathtub and the sphere above.

  • Source built entirely in marble, in Estremoz there is another similar. Well look at the brands that the passage of time makes it!

  • Located in Largo da Porta de Moura, close to the Cathedral of Évora, this magnificent Renaissance fountain consists of a column surmounted by a sphere of white marble, around which an inscription is engraved in latin that Psalm 114 8 of the Bible: "penalty in pool of water, and in water source which changed Rock". More was inaugurated in 1556 by Commission of the then Cardinal of Évora, Don Henrique, late King of Portugal. He is supplied water from the aqueduct water da Prata. It opened a Mannerist typology of sources in the city of Évora, at the same time which meant a mark of power and progress during the administration of cardinal. It is worthwhile that we come to see her; separated it only 3 minutes from the Cathedral.
