Los Ocho Caños – Eight Spout Fountain, built 1700s.

This fountain is in Ronda, Andalucía, Spain. From the patterns of wear, you can see that it’s been there for centuries. On the day that I was there, in the evening, a family was gathered on the steps next to it, chatting and enjoying the cooler evening air. One side of the fountain has basins for people, the other has a trough for thirsty animals. The square was the center of commercial Ronda from the 1700s onwards, with bars, inns, and the Padre Jesus church.
