I spent quite a bit of time watching this fountain. Don't even remember if it was working or not... just marveled at the marble structure and wondered how they had made it 500 years ago and gotten it there. From previous reviews it sounds like...More

The fountains weren't working when we visited in mid-May. Many of the photos I've seen of them don;t show them working. So, do they ever operate?

It is the original source of the Silver Water Aqueduct from the 16th century. It has 8 streams which represents the 8 streets that lead from the Square. Very nice.

This is a nice fountain if the seats are dry and you can sit and watch the activity of the Praca. When we were there, it was wet from the rain one day and barricaded off for a bicycle race another.

It's a nice fountain in the middle of the city square, just a pleasant spot. Sit and have a cup of coffee in the middle of it all.

His is just a large fountain at one end of Girard's square. It trickles a bit of water & makes a nice place to pose for a picture. It was likely a watering hole for the town before the aqueduct was broken to build the...More

This fountain is a very pretty one carved out of a single stone. It is quite impressive for that reason and it is pretty on a pretty plaza.

Situated in the busy square is this rather large fountain where there are always heaps of people sitting around talking or taking time out from shopping. Often they set up a stage in the square with free concerts. There is a long history to this...More
