Known as the Ventura Rodriguez Fountain, or the Three-Spouted Fountain, it is part of the Infante don Luis palace grounds. Actually, the fountain is the monumental frontispiece of a cube-shaped water tank that kept the palace and its fountains, gardens, and orchards hydraulically supplied with water through underground channels.
The fountain is situated at the foot of a slope to facilitate water collection, and stands facing the middle of the palace’s main façade, at the hub of an exedra, or semicircular plaza, that opens up between both structures, making it a very relevant feature from an urban-planning perspective.
The fountain, which was restored in 2008, roughly resembles the design of the Trevi Fountain in Rome, with its square base. In its main façade, which faces the palace, we find three granite niches separated by pilasters that are all at the same level and are crowned by Tuscan capitals. A large classical granite entablature runs above the entire space.
The three niches, the largest of which is in the middle, contain figureheads that have their own water supplies to splash water over each font.
