The fountain is nice but what is still nicer is the walk that starts from it and goes up to the source. There are monkeys frolicking above the walkers' heads. It is fun.

You shouldn't go to Tiradentes only to see this fountain, but if you are in town, I would recommend to take a look. It is worthy a couple of pics and some thoughts about life in the past. The walk to the place is interesting as well, so set aside a couple of minutes for this short "detour"

It could be better preserved in my opinion. It's interesting to imagine where people got their water to cook, clean,wash at that time
