In the mid-eighteenth century, a fountain made of stone, quarried in Antequera, was put in the Placeta (Plaza de España), which supplied drinking water the population for more than two centuries. The structure of a vertical monolith supports at the top of the cup leaving four pipes or nozzles. The water falls into an octagonal pillar, which once served as a watering hole for cattle. Excess water was channelled to irrigate the gardens.
Also the source of drinking water supplied to the population, but the height of his pipes and his pillar width resulted in a unique way of filling the jars, using a hollow reed to which you put a funnel on top, thus allowing water to flow from the containers.
Today is located in the centre of the village and over time has become a symbol of the village.
