Long Description:
Dating from 1356, the fountain had originally an octagonal shape and also served as a horse trough. It was renovated in 1819 and again in 1918 when is was expanded and decorated with ceramic panels of the nineteenth-century style, as well as glazed ceramic vases, all designed by Josep Aragay. The front part of the fountain has Barcelona’s coat of arms sculpted into its stone.

The murals depict female and male figures, angels, fish, birds and floral designs, and on the front of the fountain you can see "1918" painted on the tiles in Roman numerals.
