Fountains of the World

Calle Real Almuñécar , Spain

No matter where you go, you will find fountains of the world.  As an expat family living in Spain, we have noticed that every city, town, pueblo and village in Spain will have a water fountain.  Many are still functioning as a drinking fountains and we have used them.  Some are hundreds of years old and that just boggles my “American Mind”.  In the United States, we think things that are 100-200 years old are “old”.  How did they build such beautiful functioning things so many years ago?

I couldn’t help but to capture pictures  here and there and start this Gallery:
“Fountains of the World”
For the moment, it is mainly Fountains of Spain, but we will add more as we travel.  In time it will become Fountains of the world.  These aren’t all famous or grand, but beautiful just the same.  If you have a killer photo of a fountain send it over to us so we can take a peek.  Perhaps we can visit it too.

  1. So many fountains!!! I’m a huge fan of them and I love travelling in Italy because usually there are so many and everywhere, they are vital in an hot summer day! 🙂

    • Oh thanks for stopping by Franca. It is much appreciated. I forgot about all of our fountains. I have loads more to add to this, so thanks for the reminder. Aren’t fountains, just calming? Oh I love them. Fountains, Doors and Cemeteries fascinate me! All of the history behind each of them.

  2. Oh wow what a FORMIDABLE collection! It would NEVER have occurred to me to collect photos of fountains! Such a marvellous idea.

    • Oh Serena, You always make me feel so good! Hope you are doing well. I am sure I have many more pictures of fountains, as I love seeing them everywhere. This is just what I could drum up from my hard drive.

      I also love all of the unique doors everywhere. I started a photo collection of those too, that I will share soon.

Come on and tell us what you think!
