Long Description:
"This source of mineral-medicinal waters with a ferruginous composition is located under an elegant and slender classical temple built by the Porriñés architect Antonio Palacios Ramilo in 1908. The pavilion that covers the source has a square plan in which four open semicircular bodies are inscribed supported each one of them by six granite columns of classic order, with a more polished granite in the shafts and capitals with vegetal decoration. Inside the enclosure, with a circular plan, the fountain itself is located, although at a lower level than the ground. It is accessed through a staircase with several levels, in which there are some railings that describe undulations making the interior more dynamic."
