The fountain of the Olives Tree gate is from the 18th century where it was replacing a medieval gate when a new prison was constructed. The prison where the Portuguese author Camilo Castelo Branco wrote his tragic love story which is personalized in a statue further along the square.

The fountain features some scary dragon gargoyles while it served fresh water to the city - these days please do not drink the water! Not a single olive featuring in the design bizarrely!

Located in a lovely part of town stands this fountain, that back in the day provided locals with fresh water, these days just another ornate fountain within old town.
