The arch over the entrance to the road leading to the Fonte has been removed for maintenance as of early December 2016. The Fonte itself is worth a look for the peculiarity of the construction of the dome but only a trickle of water emerges these days so it's really not very exciting.

If one stays at Morro you don't get around passing by here. It's one of the oldest construction shere.

Expected a large fountain but was not disappointed to visit a mid 1700's relic is good idea. Don't forget if you have luggage use the "Taxi " to take luggage to hotel

If your hostel or hotel is located in that street, you'll have to go that way, otherwise go for it if you want to reach two of the best restaurants in Morro de São Paulo.

This is an old fountain that is in the historical and older part of Morro de Sao Paolo. There is still water running, but I am uncertain as to how functional it is. The area is quite lively with lots of bars & restaurants.
