“Historic Fountain”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2012

New Fountain is located at Rua Olímpio Nicolau Rui Fernandes, and is also known as the Fonte Nova. Other given names were the Jewish Fountain (Fonte dos Juseus). The first fountain was built in 1137 or thereabouts, but the present fountain was rebuilt in 1725 with a Baroque appearance. Beside the fountain there are stairs that were built in 1986.

“In the nice square”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 8, 2011

The fountain is in nice square, but the fountain by itself looks like nothing special. Lots of pigeons are around and waiting to feed them.
