The “Cañal” Fountain, dating back to 1877, is another of the representative works of the area, which recalls the way in which the water distribution was made in ancient times.
It is not odd to find, in some towns of Almeria fountains, cisterns and laundries. People used to meet there to collect water for their consumption, to wash, and to give water for animals to drink.
The space was recovered, in order to give a greater appeal to locals and tourists visiting the town, and a picnic area was installed in its surroundings. This allows the meeting of visitors to enjoy the view offered by the fountain.
The recovery of these spaces has been achieved thanks to the incentives of the authorities, the impulse of its inhabitants and some private organizations of the area.
