FOUNTAIN / BENCH | Old Portuguese Stuff

FOUNTAIN / BENCH

A beautiful fountain-slash-bench of hexagonal plan. It has two opposite bays with waterspouts and basins, and four as stone seats. Massive volutes separate the bays, probably inspired by the city’s rich and wild Baroque. The whole however is much more traditional in a designed, learned way – almost Arts and Crafts, with the little blue square tiles reminding us of Mackintosh.

Largo António de Magalhães, Ponte de Lima.
