Photographer's Note

This is the old "fountain of the nuns", built during the reign of King John V. It's called this way because it was ordered by the nuns of the Convent of Jesus (situated next to the fountain and that is now in ruins), in order to supply the convent wih water. In the beginning, only the nuns were allowed to get water from there, which originated a quarrel with the locals. Later the situation has changed and the fountain also. Its history explains the quotes we can now find on the wall. Here we can see one that means "Where there's a Will there's a Way".
It's still a place where the inhabitants go to fill bottles of water.
