Long Description:
This sign placed in a small building, by the roadside is lovely. This rural village praises its wateer, so the ground nearby has running water all the time.

The sign has the following inscription, in portuguese:

"Bem-vindo"

"Fontanelas"

"A água nasce do monte
uma das coisas mais belas
como nasceu de uma fonte
o nome de Fontanelas."

In English:

"Welcome"

"Fontanelas"

"The water flows from the hill
One of the nicest things
like it's running from a fountain
as the name Fontanelas"

The name Fontanelas is derived from a fountain.
Type of community: Town
