19th Century Livestock Fountain
Nov 2020
The fountain was built in the 19th century, and replaced a fountain which had previously been located here. You will find it at the entrance to Castelo de Vide, on the roundabout, when you enter the town from the direction of . Portalegre. It's a very large fountain, and was apparently designed for livestock, probably being driven into the town for market. It is made of granite and the water issues from the mouth of 4 inverted dolphins. The fountain used by local women for washing clothes is located in the south of the town.
