    I like the modern fountain although it’s a bit hard to see amongst the umbrellas. Not worth a special trip but do look if you are in the area.

    The gardens surrounding this fountain were lovely. We only had the day there but we were able to ride the boat up the river to see all bridges Go across the bridge to try out port excellence!! Stopped at one place there that had an organ and he played Beatle music while we were there. Also took in a wine festival at the palace…lovely

    Going down from the Sao Bento Train Station to the car-park and this by the “Rua Mouzinho da Silveira”, you will pass on the lefthand side the enormous fountain. This monumental fountain, which was dismantled in 1920 by the City Council, giving way to two commercial establishments that were there for several years. But later on in order to replace the aforementioned fountain, the City Council ordered the installation of a small stone fountain that year, with a small bowl, which is still found at the entrance to the “Rua do Souto”. Years later, more precisely in June of the year 1966, after the commercial establishments had been dislodged, the Chamber ordered the source to be reconstructed, striving to maintain its configuration similar to the previous one.
    This large fountain, all in worked granite and in a semi-circular shape, is inserted in a granite wall that supports the narrow “Rua dos Palames”, which runs along a much higher plane.

    A very old city fountain near the cathedral. You might miss it in all the old architecture. It once gave out an important water source.

    This historic water fountain is one of the few remaining functioning ones in the city. Sheltered and surrounded by other historic and attractive buildings, these days it seems to be more of a temporary (at least I hope so) dwelling place for the homeless.

    Walked by and enjoyed the statue and fountain. I actually didn't know it was John the Baptist until I went looking for information.
    Pleasant area to get a different view of Ribeira Porto. Wide plaza in front has lots of shops nearby.

    This fountain displays the statue of Angel St. Miguel over a small ornate column. Unfortunately, there was no flowing water when we passed it, which gave a sad look to the monument, otherwise beautiful.

    Chafariz do Pelicano is a very elaborate fountain. It is set up against and into the huge walls just below Se Cathedral. It is quite a sight. it was constructed some time in the 17th century and was part of the town water supply system. It takes its name from the large pelican sculpted into the fountain. The pelican stands at the very top and the water used to exit originally from its mouth, but it seems not any longer. In later years the fountain was moved from its original position to its present spot. Worth checking out if you are in the area.

    The park is quite large and supports a number of attractions and structures. This modest fountain is among them, a spot to stop on your stroll around, as we did.

    Porto is beautiful all year round but it is particularly beautiful during the Autumn months. 🍁😍

    Sit at one of the many tables close to the fountain of Aliados and soak in all the beauty of the city centre. The charming old buildings, stone streets, cafes, and more.

    Try catch it close to sunset for an especially incredible view of the Porto skyline against these buildings.

    Then wander off and explore all the other exquisite sights and sounds this city has to offer.
