Located in the urban core of El Castillo de las Guardas, the fountain is valuable for its uniqueness and age, which likely dates back to the 16th century. It was the meeting place for the locals. It consists of a circular marble fountain with two pipes, a stone cap and a watering trough.

Even today, the locals continue to fetch their water from the fountain. In the past, there was also a washbasin and a pond, as well as a slaughterhouse and a water mill. The water comes from a spring located about 300 metres away in the area known as Las Delicias.
