Fonte do Pomar do Espinheiro

Fonte:

Datada do século XVI, esta fonte de estilo manuelino, fica situada num ex-pomar que foi adquirido, em 1484 pela comunidade gerónima de Santa Maria do Espinheiro. A sua planta é irregular, existindo no seu interior um poço de gargalo octogonal e bancos em pedra, outrora com azulejos de oficina Sevilhana.

Fountain:

Dating from the sixteenth century, this Manueline style fountain, is located in a former orchard which was acquired in 1484 by the community of Santa Maria of the Hawthorn. Its plan is irregular and there is an octagonal pit inside and banks of stone, formerly covered with Sevillian tiles.

 

Cache:

Tanto o menir como a fonte estão inacecíveis, para lá do arame farpado e em terreno privado.

À beira da estrada há um lugar para estacionar e ver a fonte.

Both menhir as the source is inaccessible, beyond the barbed wire and on private land.

By the roadside there is a parkingspot from where you can see the fountain.
