Arcos Roman Fountain

Montalegre

Information

This historical structure, popularly named as “Roman Fountain”, is situated in the picturesque Arcos small village, in the beautiful Montalegre department.
This is a region with quite ancient human occupancy, rich in archaeological vestiges, many of them dated from the Roman occupancy of the territory.
The region is also characterized by its astonishing natural landscapes, rich in a wonderful natural good: the fresh and pure mountain Waters.
Many small villages and settlements all around have taken advantage of this precious good. In most of the places one can find Fountains that for centuries have supplied the populations with the freshest waters.
That’s the case of this granite structure, that supplied Arcos population for centuries, side by side with the much important communitarian oven, the main symbol of a rural community.
